Stacey Solomon has faced backlash from fans who have deemed her latest home transformation as unnecessary.

The 34 year old Loose Women star took to Instagram to reveal the makeover she gave to the greenhouse at her Pickle Cottage home. Stacey claims she has breathed new life into the revamped glass space by painting the frames black and adding beautiful décor inside.

In a video posted on her account, the mother-of-five, who is married to TV personality Joe Swash, spruced up the glass house by clearing out cobwebs and adding lights, rugs and plants, according to the Mirror.

In the caption for her clip, Stacey admitted that it was one of the most challenging painting tasks she's ever tackled. Despite the hard work, her greenhouse transformation took over a day to complete.

She wrote: "I DID IT! Brought Pickle Cottage Greenhouse Back To Life...30 hours in 30 seconds. Honestly, this was the hardest painting I've EVER done. But it was SO worth it. What do you think? I love it! ".

"This has been here since we moved in and we've grown our tomatoes in it but I was starting to hate going in there and I knew it could be so much more so I needed to sort it out! I can not even believe the before videos! ".

"I honestly am so happy with what a bit of paint (and hours and hours of time) can achieve I Can't wait to hide in here on a regular basis."

Some of Stacey'sfans have raised eyebrows at her unconventional use of a greenhouse. One follower remarked: "Sorry. But that is not the point of a greenhouse Stacey. But your choice."

Another chimed in with: "Ummm have you thought this through! ! You can't sit in a greenhouse and also where are you going to plant everything! ! ".

A third added their doubts: "Mmmm its a greenhouse... Not sure I see the point of the chair you'll be boiling. " A fourth fan pointed out: "I love what u do but that's not the purpose of a greenhouse."

Despite the criticism, Stacey's creative approach has won some praise, with one supporter saying: "So beautiful to see someone upcycling something that still has lots of life left in it, rather than just chucking and buying new. How special."

Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash made waves in 2021 when they bought a plush estate worth over £1million. They've been sharing their home decorating adventures with fans online.
