Instead of letting it just sit around, or pay for that return shipping, I decided to turn it into something equally as practical… a key holder!

Once dry, you can place your stickers.I made the stickers for this with my Silhouette, but you could easily just buy alphabet stickers if you don’t have a machine. I recommend using a ruler for a guide to help keep everything straight.

Pre-drill your holes with a bit (depending on how thick your hook screw is), screw in your hooks and then hang on the wall! You can used velcro or even hammer in a hook on the back, depending on how you’d like to display with your home.

    That is just beautiful. I love the rustic mixed with glam!

  • I really love it – absolutely sublime!

    But I’ve got a tiny question: I can’t see any brushstrokes – how did you do that? I always get those stupid strokes when I work with acrylic paint and bristle brushes.

    • Yes! I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that the wood was treated before (so the surface was smooth). The Martha Stewart soft bristle brushes also work like a dream :)

  • Love this, love the combination of the colour blocking with the gold. I’m always losing my keys so I could definitely do with making something like this!

    • Thanks Emma! I hope you try the project! You’ll have to let me know how it goes if you do :)
