So we have a key rack on the wall right inside our front door. It has 4 hooks but we have a lot more than 4 sets of keys. They always get jumbled up and you have to move them around to find the keys you want. Those things can get pretty expensive and I love a good craft, so I decided to make my own key holder. One that would give us more space.
Here's the finished product! I bought the board from Micheal's. It was normally like $6-$7 but I used a 40% off coupon. I painted it white and it didn't take near as many layers as I expected. I have these large stamp letters that I used. It's hard to see in the photo but the grain in the wood prevented the paint from getting on every spot of the letter so it looks antique-ish/faded. I like it! Then I mod-podged in the opposite direction I had painted twice and finished with a third coat in the same direction I painted. It gave the board a canvased look.
I finished the actual board a few days ago and have been itching to post it on here but couldn't because I didn't have the hooks yet. Got a big pack of those from Lowes for a few dollars. I used my friend's husband's drill bit to start the holes for the hooks after I marked where I wanted them. That made it really easy to screw in the hooks. They're really sturdy too. I spaced them so far apart to allow for room for the top to hang. Here's how it looks with my keys on there:
I was so excited about this! Well, hope you all have a great week :)
