Pinterest is evil.
It makes everything look so easy.
When my husband and I got married in 2011, I moved in to his house. I have changed, or have attempted to change, just about everything. The key rack and the kitchen junk drawer are about the last two holdouts. We had a key rack that I know had to be from the 1980’s. It actually had geese on it. At least it was metallic and not pale blue and mauve, but still.
It had to go.
I saw this pin on Pinterest. How cute! And we have a ton of old keys! How hard could it be?
I had a piece of wood, and I painted it with Miss Mustard Seed Luckett’s Green, and waxed it with Miss Mustard Seed Antiquing Wax.
So far, so good.
I don’t even want to tell you how many keys I snapped in two trying to make this thing.
I finally gave it up. I got out some hooks from my stash, made a starter hole with a push pin, and screwed the cup hooks in through the hole in the key.
Not too bad, right?
Now I need to get back to Pinterest!
