Stephanie’s Painted Samples

Last week when Precious Stephanie came over she brought me some painted wood samples. She said they were outdated, but she knew I could make something out of them. It only took me a second to realize that the would make great key holders. I went to Ace and bought $27.00 worth of stuff to make key holders. I got fan pull chain, connectors, cup hooks, sea grass rope, and gray acrylic. I had to drill one hole in each board. The small samples had a hole already. I painted the back of the small boards gray so the raw wood and the marker writing would not show. Got the rope and mad hangers, and then put the cup hooks in. I wrote on some of them “Keys” in gold paint pen. I put chains on the small board samples and hung them off the chains. Simple and easy.
