Do you often lose your keys? I definitely do. Well, not lose, but misplace. And Chris tends to leave his keys just about anywhere. So, thanks to Pinterest, we were inspired to make a key holder - with old keys!
You need: old keys (you can get some here), a piece of wood (distressed, if possible), screws, pliers and a drill
First, if your piece of wood is too long, cut it to the size you'd like. We made ours about 8 inches and used 4 keys.
Using 2 plies, bend the bottom of the key upwards to create a curved hook.
Once you've done this with all four (or however many you choose to use) keys, attach them to the wood.
And you're finished with the front!
To hang your key holder without using string or visible hooks, use a drill to create holes in the back of the piece of wood.
Then you'll be able to put nails in the wall and simply hang this on them.
And there you have it! A pretty cool looking place to hang your keys, or anything that you need in a handy place. I love the rustic look of this so much! It is indeed possible to combine style with function.
