Stacey Solomon reveals kitchen update at Pickle Cottage and shares pergola transformation during renovations

STACEY Solomon got hands on as she helped put up a pergola at the stunning Essex home she shares with fiancé Joe Swash and their four kids.

Dubbed 'Pickle Cottage' by the star, Stacey, 32, has been busy putting the finishing touches to the outdoor area ahead of her summer nuptials to Joe.

She shared a video of her in the backyard with the tradies as she got her hands – and cream clothes – dirty.

"Spent the morning staining the pergola. I only got to two posts and two rows and then my arms felt like they were going to fall off. So i'll carry on tomorrow," she captioned the video.

Stacey then asked fans opinions of the colour wood she chose for the pergola which sat in front a row of trees and an in-progress brick barbecue.

"I love light wood but I thought a dark wood stain would be prettier with the trees and lightness of the tile… What do you think?" she asked.

"Also I want to put a climber all over it but I want one that doesn't die off in the winter are there evergreen climbers and what the best kind for a pergola?"

The Loose Women panellist then head inside to cuddle seven-month-old daughter, Rose, and apologised for getting her light coloured clothes dirty.

Joe piped up in the background: "Have a look at my trainers," which Stacey had worn while working on the pergola.

Stacey said: "I wear trainers because they look old," and Joe interrupted, "they look old now."

But Stacey was adamant: "I didn't get anything on them."

The TV star then shared her Primark haul and "the last little bits" she picked up for the kitchen which would be "fully done" by Friday.

"It's taken over a year to get to this point and I'm so grateful and excited," Stacey admitted.

Then with baby Rose sitting beside her and snacking on Doritos, she showed some beautiful plates, a vase and sea salt and scented candles.

Stacey also laughed at herself as she bought two bookends to place her bestseller book, Tap To Tidy' between them.

Her big day of shopping and renovations comes after Stacey shared a glimpse of her wedding dress options with her 5million followers.

ge of gowns she was going to choose from, but promised Joe was blocked from seeing them.

Stacey panned across to show off the six dresses she planned to choose from as they hung gracefully from hangers in her bedroom.

While the blush pink and off-white gowns seemed similar at a first glance with sheer bodices, each had a unique twist from a strapless embellished dress, to two featuring plunging necklines and sheer straps.

One dress option had a stunning floral embroidery across the tulle overlay.

"Good morning from some words I never imagined I'd be saying," Stacey captioned the video before adding, "I'm picking my wedding dress today."
