The 32 year old had begun staining the newly-set up pergola in her garden by the pool and had shared the potentially-messy process in a sped up clip uploaded to Instagram Stories.
“Spent the morning staining the pergola,” Stacey captioned the video.
“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.”

The Loose Women star had discussed how she had been excited to change the light wood of the pergola to dark wood to match the light tiles on the floor as well as the trees. Stacey planned to also add a fireplace once the staining was complete.
In the footage posted of the process, Stacey could be seen wearing a clean white sweatshirt and matching jogging bottoms as she painted the wooden beams — leaving fans in despair at the damage that could be caused to the outfit.
“Varnishing in white clothes!” One follower messaged the TV star, as another added: “I love that you do this stuff wearing white”.
Sharing her fans’ cautionary comments on Instagram Stories after her wood-staining clip, Stacey responded with the caption: “I know it drives you all crazy I paint and stain in my white clothes.
“But I mostly own white/beige or cream clothes so I just stain carefully & wash my clothes after.”
Filming herself indoors this time as she posted the caption, Stacey said: “I’m quite a clean stainer, so I did well” as she showed off her nearly spotless sleeves.
Joe, who could be seen in the background of the video holding their baby daughter Rose, wasn’t impressed with his fiancée as she also confessed in the caption: “Joe’s fuming I wore his trainers but I honestly got nothing on them”.
The 40 year old told Stacey to show her followers the aftermath of his borrowed trainers which were eventually revealed to be in less clean a condition than her white clothes following the wood staining.
“I borrowed your trainers because they’re old!” Stacey replied as Joe snapped back: “Well they look old now don’t they?”
