I don’t know about you, but I really try to organize my keys. I have this basket right by the garage door where everyone stores their keys. The problem is, they get tangled together and sometimes it is hard to find them. If I don’t plop them in the basket, I leave them on the kitchen counter or throw them in my purse. This adds extra time and stress in the morning when I run frantically about the house, looking for my keys!
I decided to do something about it!
Here is my quick and easy way to organize your keys!
- wooden tray
- acrylic paint
- 3 or 4 coordinating scrapbook papers
- Mod Podge
- Commander hooks
I found this inexpensive wooden tray at the local craft store.
My first step was to use white acrylic paint and apply two coats. You can paint it any color you like or even stain it. There is no need to paint the bottom of the tray since it will be covered. Make sure it dries thoroughly.
Tear or cut the scrapbook papers into strips and/or shapes. Use the Mod Podge to glue them onto the tray – covering the entire bottom. Let dry for at least 1/2 hour.
Once it is completely dry, stick the command hooks to the tray. The command hooks come with a tab for removal purposes. Since you aren’t going to remove them, cut off that tab so you can’t see them behind the hook.
I used three hooks and spaced them out evenly on the tray.
I put a picture hanger on the back, hung the tray by the door and added all of our keys!
Now my keys are organized in a beautiful and functional way.
