Chalkboard Key Rack

I hope the weather is cooperating for you this memorial weekend, we are seeing gray skies and even rain but it is ok since I am not ready for the 105 degree summers yet. Please be safe this weekend and also take a moment to remember why we have this holiday and if you have access to a veteran say thank you. I know my veteran would appreciate it.

Now I was in a crafting mood but did not feel like sewing today since I have been finishing up the father’s day quilt so the red, white and blue apron had to wait… good thing American pride is always in style! So I went to my key rack and decided it was time for a change. I was just sick of it.

So I took:

Scrapbook paper

Mod podge

Box bottom

Chalkboard paint

Cup hooks




Since I already did the other one I  just covered it but it was the same thing I attached the new scrapbook paper with modpodge, then glazed it.

I put the hooks in the bottom of the canvas and added stickers to say Keys.

What I decided to add was a chalkboard since I had this chalk paint and have not used it yet! That really needed to change! I followed the directions on the paint but added 3 coats instead of 2 just to be sure.

I knew I needed somewhere to put the chalk so I found a bottom of a gift box that was leftover from Christmas and hot glued it to the board for the chalk.

So now I have a key rack and message center! I like how it turned out this time, not that I didn’t like it last time but the handwriting of the Keys got messed up so it was bugging me greatly. And plus the key paper is just so cute!

Well I hope you have a fabulous weekend, I am off to the Sacramento County Fair! :]
