The impressive transformation was shared to her 5.9million followers on Instagram, and showed before and after her hard work.

Hailing it her “greenhouse glow up”, Stacey showed how she first cleared the floor and then scrubbed it clean using a bucket of water and a broom.

When the floor was gleaming, the mum-of-five then painted the outside rim black, and added a dark grey paint to the floor.

The finished result looked very chic and perfect for this summer.

On the show, Stacey joked she is better at DIY than her husband, saying he is ”not handy at all”.

”Because I’m much better at it than Joe.”
