A woman took to social media to proudly show how she upgraded her living space.

Taking to Facebook, Phumzile Masombuka, a nurse from Pretoria, uploaded before-and-after images of her home on the group "Make your bedroom beautiful with Thembi's Linen," known for its members sharing photos of their humble homes.

Phumzile posted two collaged pictures. In the 'before' set of images, viewers see a few buckets and a wash basin, baby formula, a jug, and packets of noodles, all indicating a kitchen area. The second image shows a suitcase and a few bags, while the third shows Phumzile's sleeping area, which consists of a blanket on the floor and a makeshift pillow.

The second collage shows an entirely different living space. Phumzile upgraded from a blanket to a bed with a mattress, has a wardrobe for her clothes, and kitchen cupboards. It seems the nurse also owns a laptop, which was in view.

She captioned her post:

"From here to there. Kancani kancani."

Take a look at the pictures below:
