Good morning. And, happy Monday to you all!
This week I want to share a little DIY project I did myself! I always had a key chain with 6 or 7 keys on it. I can NEVER distinguish my keys. Which one goes to my apartment? To my room? To my mail box? I stand at the door, trying every key on my the ring until I happen upon luck.
Well, it’s obvious: I. Need. A. Solution.
So, I headed to Lowe’s to choose from different colored and patterned keys that you can be cut to match your key. After I got there it took only a minute to figure how much money I would be spending on keys, I headed towards the exit door. My college student budget doesn’t have room for that… they’re too pricey, and not too pretty.
I had an idea! So, I headed home ready to craft.
The first thing I could think of was acrylic paint… why not? It’s the perfect solution. Can’t I simply paint each of key a different color & pattern and save myself around $20? Why, certainly. This is perfect!
So, I did exactly that – I went to the craft closet to retrieve some acrylic paint (which they sell at Hobby Lobby for cheap!!).
And, this is where my afternoon went:
I wanted to spice it up with a little pep so i grabbed some sparkly nail polish
to go over the blue…
Such a quick, easy lively DIY project.
To make sure it doesn’t chip you will need to paint a minimal of 2 coats. Then, make a final coat of clear nail polish!!
Neat, huh? It was such a merry, little fun time doing this. To make it even better: I know I saved so much money. It saved me more than I would’ve spent buying the keys! Now, not only does my key chain look unbelievably bright and fabulous I don’t have to stand at the door for 20 minutes wondering which key will work!!
The Colonial House tool kit is overflowing with keys – delivery keys of all shapes and sizes to wedding venues, churches, event halls, banquet rooms, offices and even houses accumulated since 1968. Have you seen it? Not only does this charming little trick benefit my personal efforts, but it’s the perfect trick to use here at the studio.
Now, every time I look down at my keys, I smile a little bit. It’s funny how a tiny of creativity & a cool idea can brighten your day! 🙂
Hope you all enjoy! Happy crafting!
