Always losing your keys? Get organised with this DIY key holder, designed to look stylish while being uber functional.
Top tip: Try an ombre effect by starting at one end using your favourite darker Resene colour and a Resene white testpot. First paint the dark colour as is, then gradually add more white as you paint more, so that you end up with a graduation of colour from dark to light.
Step one: Take the timber offcut and mark five sections.
Step two: Saw the lines two thirds of the way through.
Step three: Sand the timber, dust off and paint the individual blocks of colour with the Resene testpot colours above (use masking tape if you need to). Leave to dry.
Step four: Paint the reverse in Resene St Kilda. Leave to dry.
Step five: Paint beads in the same colours that as the key holder.
Step six: Cut pieces of leather and string your keys and painted beads onto either ends. They’re now ready to hang in your key holder.
Step seven: Hammer the hooks and hang up the key holder.
