Wanna see? Well... do you ya... punk? Yep that definitely sounded better in my head lol.
Here is my new key hook holder! I used to have one of those mail sorter ones with the slots and the hooks. It was a light wood with gold cup hooks. Not exactly my style anymore. Hubby has been bugging me since we moved in to put something up to hang the keys on. Even the old holder which I couldn't bring myself to do.
Want to see how I made it? Oh it was so simple you'll want to run right out and make one!
Get a drawer face. And with a chisel and hammer knock the back lip off so it can hang flat against the wall.
Now sand it until smooth, doesn't have to be perfect if you plan on distressing it, just smooth. Then paint and distress. I didn't take a picture of this part since I know my readers are capable =) At least I hope so.
Then get some E-6000 glue and adhere your keys onto the front of the board in any pattern you choose. This took me the longest. Trying to figure out how I wanted them to lay. Vertical, horizontal, slanted etc... The possibilities are endless and totally based on preference.
You can see above I also measured and drilled where I wanted my cup hooks to go. The E-6000 glue takes a bit to set up so I would leave them overnight to set and then it will be like cement.
Next you will need some of this stuff. Frame hanging brackets and cup hooks of your choice.
Measure for center unless you feel you need a bracket on both sides. Then I would measure for the center of the bracket to be 2in in from each end of your wood. Just a few smacks with the hammer will secure this piece on.
Now screw in your cup hooks and hang! Voila, so simple and totally tres chic!
