Fix it with Flair 2016: Meet our Top 10!


What an exciting variety of entries we received for our 2016 Fix it with Flair competition...

We know by now that Home readers are resourceful, creative and budget-savvy – and this year’s entries in our popular Fix it with Flair competition have shown this yet again. When it comes to home renovation projects, our readers prove their mettle year after year.

While the Home team carefully sifted through the entries to identify the semi-finalists, the ultimate selection was hotly debated – there could, after all, be only 10! The rules stipulate that at least 60% of the work had to have been done by the homeowners themselves, and it’s clear that our Top 10 aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves to make their dreams a reality.

Here’s our shortlist in no particular order:

#1: Candice Theunissen and Cornelius Stanley

#2: Mark and Cheryl Kelman

#3: Jonathan en Kelly Croeser

#4: Gert and Martie Koeglenberg

#5: Marieta Maree

#6: Andrew and Victoria Zekveld

#7: Stephan and Lumé Reiter

#8: Dewald and Erika van Zyl

#9: Sias and Lisa Reynolds

#10: Werner and Tanja Schneeberger



This year, Home readers will also have a say in who will become a Top 5 finalist. Best of all? There are great prizes up for grabs for those who vote online.


Ten lucky readers can each win a hamper which includes an Alcolin gift set, a Pylones retro handset, and a Pennypinchers tool belt.
