We had a key holder in our last house, but it was screwed into the wall, so was left as part of the purchaser’s agreement. So, I had been without a key holder for almost two years. I didn’t loose my keys THAT often because I carved out a little space on the top shelf of the closet, but it definitely wasn’t as convenient as a key holder. Luckily, I joined Pinterest, and found a great idea for an easy, inexpensive and unique key holder. It was one of those Pinterest posts that didn’t actually link to anything, so I’m going to do a short tutorial here.
- 7″x5″ art canvas
- small screw in hooks
- cotton fabric
- staple gun
- two large head nails
- Cut the fabric into a rectangle about 3″ wider and 3″ higher than your art canvas
- Centre the fabric on the canvas, flip the canvas over and fold the extra fabric to the back of your canvas.
- Use a staple gun to secure the fabric to the canvas.
- Screw in 4 small hooks to the bottom of your canvas. The wood used to make the canvas should be soft enough to allow you to do this by hand.
- Hammer the two nails into the wall wide enough apart to support the two top corners of the canvas. As you can see, they were a little too close together on my first try 😉
- Hang your new key holder, and enjoy always* know where your keys are.
*well, almost always
