Seeking feedback from her followers, Stacey asked: "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."

Her fans have been effusive in their praise for the greenhouse's new look, with many inquiring about the source of the elegant rattan lamps adorning the ceiling. After some investigation, it turns out that the sought-after lights are Rattan LED Solar Pendant Lamps from Value Lights, retailing at £49.99 apiece, reports OK!

These lights are a fantastic choice as they're solar-powered, meaning they won't contribute to your electricity bill - ideal as utility costs continue to soar. Moreover, they offer 8-10 hours of illumination for every 6-8 hours of solar charging.

If you're on the hunt for a more wallet-friendly alternative or require multiple lights for an outdoor area, there are less expensive solar-powered lights available that deliver a similar effect.
