DIY Rustic Key Holder

Image

We needed a key holder.

Badly.

For some reason we have approximately 1.2345 million keys.

Why we don not key everything the same…I don’t know.

However, we don’t.

So…I needed a key holder. 

I had seen some at the primitive shops that I scope out, however my budget does not allow for such things.

Making this type of a key holder is super easy.

First all you need is a scrap piece of wood. 

Paint it a solid color (in this case mine was painted black).

Allow it to dry.

Paint a solid color( in this case I had some leftover egg shell), while it is still wet apply a layer of white school glue liberally.

Allow to dry, an it will crackle.

MAKE SURE the paint is still WET or it will not crackle!

I did not take step by step pics, because I wasn’t planning to post this until my daughter said I should.

I guess I need to start taking pics of everything I do while I am doing it, just in case. Call me the paparazzi. 

After everything is dry attach your embellishments, in this case old door knobs and keys. (That is what the one I saw at the shop had too, and I just so happened to have old knobs and keys…yay!)

After that is done, spray it or paint it with polyurethane to seal the deal.

Then hammer ya a few nails in (mine were old cast offs) that the keys can hang from.

On the back put a wire  loop to hang it with (I use galvanized wire).

There ya go..an easy key hanger!
