Key Hook Decor

This is one of my FAVORITE projects!  It’s quick, easy and cheap!  Lots of bang for your buck;)

I say cheap because I started with pieces from our scrap wood pile:)

I used an old sheet of bead board, a 1×6 and 1×3’s.

I trimmed out the bead board with the 1×3’s

using Gorilla Glue wood glue and a staple gun to secure them.

Next, I hammered a saw tooth hanger through the back.

I attached the 1×6 with wood glue and drilled 2″ screws through the back (pre drill so the wood doesn’t split)

I spray painted it with 1 coat of Rust-Oleum black gloss.

I found these super cute glass knobs at Hobby Lobby (50% off of course;)

and paired them with these pretty hooks from Home Depot.

I pre drilled holes for the hooks

and put the knobs through the top holes on the hooks then secured them on the back.

I attached it to the wall, added the metal buckets (purchased at Ikea for $1 each) and filled them with dried hydrangea.

That was it!  Time invested was about 1 hour and money invested was about $15!  LOVE:)

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Friday!

    I’m really diggin this shelf and the fact that you say it was from your wood pile is so super cool! I know I’m about 5 years late, but better than never.

    Um, my key holder just realized it is the fat friend.

    This looks perfect on your wall! How creative to combine the hooks and the knobs, I never would have thought to do that!

  • I made this a little smaller than yours (16″ shelf) to accomodate my smaller pails but it still came out lovely. Thanks so much for the tutorial!

    Girl, that is so cute!!!

  • I just found your blog, I noticed that your washer and dryer are on a short platform; I’m assuming that you made it, can you post about that or send me pics… I need to unstack mine and use my limited space better. Thanks.
