My new husband and I can't keep up with our keys to save our lives. I decided to make something pretty to hang by the door that way we could keep up with them!



I asked Jared to cut out the rectangle and a couple of other shapes for other projects and I sanded them down and started to paint them.



I used red and blue since those are the colors of my kitchen and I attempted a crackle finish, which didn't really turn out the way I wanted, but I still liked it, so i went with it! I found a bird shape online and cut it out and traced it. After all the paint dried, I attached hangers in the back and hammered in three masonry nails to be the hangers and it was done!

Cute! I need a key hanger and couldn't figure out how I wanted to make it. Thanks for my jumping off point!
