With just days to go until the birth of her daughter, Stacey Solomon has been in full nesting mode making more updates to her new home.

The Loose Women presenter has been working hard to transform the £1.2 million pad and tailor it exactly to her family’s tastes and needs.

In this latest project, the 31 year old got to grips with painting a huge wall mural in her baby’s nursery.

Stacey shared with fans the simple technique that she used to achieve the results of a perfect painted arch.

The Tap to Tidy author posted a step by step guide that is so quick and easy that it is definitely tempted us to give it a go.

Stacey used a pencil on a string in order to enable her to draw the perfect curve which she then marked up with masking tape and got to work painting.

The tape was removed to reveal a perfect arch in a pebble shade with Stacey sharing plans to add shelves to the space to make it a real feature.


Writing alongside the video, she said: “Find the centre of the wall. Draw two lines either side to the height you want your arch.

“Tie some string to a pencil, nail or hold tight the string to your centre point and pull tight. Then you can draw the curve at the top.

Frog tape the edges – I only had masking tape. Then paint. I found it easier to paint the curve without the tape really slowly – the tape gave me a false sense of security.”


Stacey and Joe have been working hard to fix up their new home, Pickle Cottage, in preparation for their daughter’s arrival.

The star previously revealed how it has been 'the best feeling' to decorate the bedroom for her 'darling daughter' due any day now.

Captioning pictures of the space, the mum-of-three penned: "Our baby girl's room – done. To my Darling daughter, I’ve loved every single second of making this special place for you.”

"My whole heart, and soul is in this room and I would do it all again if I could. I cannot wait to bring you home here and show you everything.

"I cannot wait to hold you, cuddle you, sing to you, feed you and put you to bed in here. I’m so proud of everything in here and it’s been the best feeling making it and I’ll miss being covered in pink paint. We can not wait to see you little one. To the moon and stars and back again princess, we love you."

The latest post be Stacey’s final update before she gives birth after the pregnant star admitted that she would now be taking a few days away from social media.

Sharing a video of two year old son Rex chasing their dog, Peanut, the 31 year old star captioned it: “Good morning, Happy Thursday from me, the wolf pack and a very feral Rex.

“I’m going to put my phone away for a couple of days… I feel exhausted… I promise I’ll keep you updated if princes[s] pickle decides to show any signs of moving on out of my rib cage.
