The space has gorgeous original features including a sink, which had gold taps and was painted with a blue floral design inside the basin, as well as a toilet with the same painted pattern.

Stacey set to work redecorating the space to match the blue and white design.

First she began by excitedly revealing to her followers: “So I’m going to panel the bottom half with these MDF panels and no more nails…”

She then admitted the next step in the process as to: “then paint the top half a nice blue colour to match the sinks… I don’t no how much I’ll get done but I’m hoping to get at least half done today”, alongside some laughing face emojis.

The star then began painting the walls a gorgeous sky blue colour, and after that set about gluing the white wooden panels vertically to the wall. She made sure to get “the groves in tightly”.

The former X Factor contestant then changed the toilet seat from wooden to white, adding: “It was making me feel gross. Looked like wee in the toilet all the time with the brown seat”.

She also ripped up the carpet, then shared a snap of the transformed space, labelling it “almost there”.

In the picture we can see that the space is taking shape, and when new floors are put in and the panelling is finished it should look very sweet indeed.

Stacey captioned it, writing: “So tomorrow I’ll saw some panels to fit in the gaps. Then decide on flooring tile or wood what do you think?

“Then I can’t wait to buy little bits and pieces to accessorise.”

We cannot wait to see the finished product!
