KEY RING

Key Holder

The only cost is your time.

MATERIALS USED: One leftover piece of shelving, hooks and a pack of rub on letters.
COST: Shelving was free, rub on letters probably cost me about $3.00 two years ago and the hooks were left over from a former project.
TOTAL COST TO MAKE A SIMILAR PIECE: Maybe $5.00?
TOTAL TIME: 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Inspired by the many projects in Readymade, and on Apartment Therapy Chicago, I decided to create my own key holder. It was rather easy and cost me virtually nothing. Everything I used, I had in my house.

Here are some photos to help along with the instructions:

Key Ring Key Ring
Start with a piece of wood. Rub on or paint the word "keys" on the wood.

Screw in the hooks on the bottom of the wood and hang on the wall. Now hang your keys. Enjoy!

First take a piece of wood, any piece of wood. In this case, I used a left over piece from a shelving unit. Paint or rub on the word "keys." Then, screw in the hooks to hold the keys. I screwed in two hooks, but you can screw in as many as you'd like. Now hang on the wall. Ours hangs in our hallway and works as storage for our keys, which never get lost now.

With minimal materials and a bit of your time, you can create this piece.
