An Old Cupboard Transformed Into A Pegboard Gym & Office Storage

Some of you may have been following my home office project on my Instagram or Facebook pages.

If you haven’t, Kurt and I basically decided to declutter the granny flat on our property, which just became a storage space over the years, into our home office.

Inside one of the rooms, there’s was an old cupboard that didn’t look great at all. Kurt and I were about to break it down and get rid of it. However, thanks to Studio Taryn B who I’ve collaborated with on this project, convinced me to keep it.

Her idea was brilliant – the cupboard is not just my office storage space but also has a pegboard storage solution for my home gym equipment.

This month marks an entire year since we’ve been in lockdown! How crazy is that? To think that we’ve been inside our home for 99% of this time, it’s really unbelievable.

For the past year, the kids haven’t been to a restaurant or play place and it’s something we used to do almost every weekend, pre-pandemic days.

Deon Wiggetts “My Only Story” Helps Parents Identify Paedophiles In Our Midst

I’m not sure if you’ve heard or seen the headlines about the comments about rape made by our Education Minister to pupils at a Pretoria school this week – if not, read about it here.

It was a very dangerous and shocking statement which she now says was taken out of context. Nevertheless, people are not too happy about it.

The timing was weird for me as the statement was made, as I was finishing reading My Only Story from Deon Wigget.

I am still in disbelief that I have a grade 2 daughter and grade R son! Where has the time gone?

What’s so lovely about them both being so close in age and in the foundation phase together, is that they are learning so much from each other. Alyssa is now reading beautifully and is able to help her brother learn the basics. Her teacher is encouraging her class to read one non-school book per week which I think is a brilliant idea! Alyssa has taken up the challenge and in fact reading even more and often reads to Aidan.

So naturally, the kids were excited when they were sent a copy of local author Kayla Diamond’s new children’s picture story book, titled The Jellyfish Jiggle.
