Key holder

When I read this post, forever ago I knew I wanted to take a try at this project. I love Karla's taste, her whole house is absolutely gorgeous and the key holder was no exception.

I knew I wanted this to be as free as I could make it, so I used a bigger piece of scrap wood since it's the only one I could find. The scrabble letters were donated from my Mother in Law and the hooks were ones we had for the bathroom that someone never got to hanging up. ;) I tried out the blue first and it just wasn't working in our plain jane neutral entryway. So over it in black I went, it's nice that I can see a little of the blue peeking through, from all the sanding and beating it got. I love me some old-looking-projects, if it gets messed up no one will know.




I used some picture hanging hooks for the back and screwed in the front hooks, the screws were a tad long so to make sure they didn't scratch up the wall I dabbed a bit of glue on the back. Glue the letters on and it's done! So simple.



If you want to see in more detail how it was made or how to make the stripes super crisp, go check out Karla's post about it, she's the genius in it all. :)

Glad we have a place for the keys now, and I can try and avoid the "Crap, where'd you put the keys?" moments before school everyday.

Do you have a key holder? A special spot for them? Play the find-them-game daily?
