Stacey Solomon is queen of the home hacks but her latest black loo roll blunder could be a case of style over substance.
The Loose Women panelist, 31, appeared at her million pound ‘Pickle Cottage’ pad and explained that the black loo roll she had opted for – presumably to match her new dark decor – is actually not up to the job.
She said on her Instagram story: “I strongly advise against buying black loo roll. It gives you no indication on what’s going on down there. It’s just wipe and hope for the best. I’m looking forward to just running out and go back to white so I can know where I stand, if I’m honest.”
The pregnant star has just finished sprucing up her families bathroom and turned to her trademark bargain buys to give her bathroom a facelift.
And her inspiration for the makeover actually came to her while she was sat on the loo, as she told her followers online: “So I was sitting on the toilet, as you do, just looking around thinking this will probably be one of the last rooms we decorate because it’s one of the least important before baby arrives.”
To do so, she stocked up on a monochrome rug for £4 and a large black-framed mirror for £14.
In her latest haul, Stacey snapped up black bathroom accessories to add to its new look, including a black matte toilet roll holder and a matching toilet brush.
She was keen to show off her handy work which dragged her dated decor to the present day with a fresh modern look, she shared it on Insta as soon as it was complete.
She gushed: “I’m so soo happy with it. For a bit of paint, a mirror, sealer and some fejkas it feels soooo much better (sic),” Stacey told fans.
She also shared adorable shots of her three sons in black bath robes and towels – dubbing the trio- black ninjas.
She added: “And they”re clean…feeling like I’ve won the lottery. They think the new black dressing gowns are hilarious. Apparently they’re ninja dressing gowns.”
And the star is keen to wrap up her little projects before she adds to her brood as she is pregnant with her fourth child – her second with husband-to-be Joe.
The pair were due to get married in July, but have since decided to postpone their wedding as they want their unborn baby to share their special day.
