Little Key Project

I have had this little frame laying around my house for about a year. I got it at Target on the Clearance shelf for $.49...at that price, I couldn't pass it up! Now that Keys are all the rage in home accessories, I knew just what to do with that little frame. My little condo is the first place that I have ever purchased...all on my own!! So this extra house key is very special and needed a proper display! I started out by sanding down the blond wood finish so I could paint it black. I then grabbed some leftove black paint for my front door and put on 3 thin coats.

I wanted to put some cute craft paper behind the key but I thought it might take the focus away from the key itself so I stuck with plain white.

I hot glued the key to a print out that I made and that was it. Nice and clean and the key really stands out against the white paper.

Now...where to hang it.......
