While we lived in Canada I was on a major organizing kick. We had a giant house (5 bedrooms and a fully finished basement) which was about 3 times too big for our 3 person family. It screamed for organization.
One of the easiest things to incorporate was a key holder. I searched on Pinterest for awhile (where else??) and found this one that I really liked. Clicking on the link revealed it to be in an etsy shop, on sale for a mere $33. Thanks, but no thanks. We made ours for about $2.Like most kids, J has a bag of wooden blocks. I dug through them until I found K E Y and S in a pattern. Funny story: 3 year old J threw a fit when she saw this mounted on the wall! She was not pleased that I had stolen some of her blocks. Whoops!
Hubby took a scrap piece of wood from one of our many other projects and cut it approximately 10×4. He painted it white with some leftover primer then picked up a set of 4 hooks for $2 at Lowes and twisted them in. I hot glued the wooden blocks on, and BAM! Finished!
Only problem? I never remember to hang my keys on it! According to Hubby, he hung it up on the wall directly across from the front door at eye level so I would see it when I walked in. However, at 5’2″, his estimate of my eye line was a bit off..it’s about 2 inches too high to be in my line of vision. So although the 75 sets of keys Hubby owns can always be found at a moment’s notice, I’m usually wondering around the house for 15 minutes looking for mine. Because why wouldn’t they be on the sink in the upstairs bathroom?? Makes perfect sense.
