Stacey Solomon rescues her stained sofa with genius £29 covers that make it look brand new

STACEY Solomon has revealed her clever hack for overhauling her stained sofa.

The mum-of-three was disgusted by the state of her cream couch after her baby son Rex and dog Theo had left some unsavoury marks on the upholstery.

But the DIY queen made her sofa look immaculate again with a £29.99 sofa cover.

"I bought these sofa covers because my poor sofa is beyond repair," she told fans on Instagram.

"I've tried everything but nothing is gonna get these stains out so maybe I can cover it with these and it will look better.

"I don't know why I've chosen cream it's not practical but at least you can take them off and wash them."

Stacey told fans she got the magic stretchable covers from Magics Of A Cover and it only cost £29.99.

"This really wasn't easy, the montages make it look easy but it's taken me two hours to get it on," she admitted.

The thrifty mum is always sharing her bargain hacks with fans and earlier this month she got stuck into making wedding favours for just 65p each.

Joe Swash proposed to Stacey on Christmas Eve in the woods near their house in Essex.

She may have shot to fame on The X Factor - but these days, Stacey is well-known for her crafty tips.

So it came as no surprise that she's planning on making a few bits and bobs for the wedding.

She bought some 'make your own coasters' from eBay "to see if they're nice" so people at their wedding "can take them home as a memory".

Stacey filled the plastic containers with fake eucalyptus leaves and dry flowers, admitting the favours were "quick and easy to do".

She said she would make more of the favours up depending on Covid restrictions and if she would "allowed more people there on the day, they'll be easy to keep adding to".

The Loose Women panellist said she would put some 'S&J' gold labels on them to complete the look.

Stacey then revealed she bagged the adornments and containers for a bargain online.

"These coasters are from eBay I just typed in 'clear round coasters to fill'. They cost me £13 for 20 so about 65p each. But I'm sure you can buy them in bulk for even cheaper," she wrote on Instagram.

Earlier this month, the mum-of-three, 31, revealed she has her heart set on marrying in 2021 as their "loved ones won't be around forever".

It's been less than a month since Stacey got engaged - and the star has wasted no time searching for venues.

Last week, Stacey answered questions from some of her 4m followers on Instagram about the wedding and revealed they've already found the place they want to tie the knot.

Answering a question about whether she'd ever get married abroad, Stacey shared a photo of a converted church with a glass ceiling - but didn't confirm if this was her venue.

She said: "I used to think I wanted to run away and elope, but after losing family members this year, I could not feel more opposite…"

So far, it seems like Stacey has already got a fairytale-worthy engagement ring - after Joe incorporated opals (which are Stacey's birth stone) from Australia into the design to represent where they first met.
