How to make a distressed key holder from a wine crate.
Clearly I like my wine because I have another project that involves a wine crate!
You might recall the time I turned a wine crate into a serving tray.
Anyhoo, it’s not good to waste a precious wine crate so I took the lid from that crate and used it to make this little number.
Let me show you how I made this distressed key holder from a wine create lid.
Here is what you’ll need for this project:
- wine crate, more specifically the lid from a wine crate
- charcoal grey paint (I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in Graphite)
- creamy white paint (I used Annie Sloan Old White)
- 2 foam brushes
- mini screw hooks
- oil-rubbed bronze spray paint (I can’t live without this stuff!)
- foam board or cardboard
- drill or screwdriver
Here is exhibit A. I had this wine crate for awhile now. It held 3 wine bottles if that is helpful to you in trying to find this exact size.
I love the stamped branding on the front of the lid so I knew I wanted to create something with it.
I could only find gold hooks and I wanted oil-rubbed bronze so I screwed them into a piece of foam board and went crazy with the spray paint.
Then I marked out the areas I wanted the hooks and pre-drilled the holes.
Feel free to use pencil marks because you’ll be painting over them.
I painted two coats of paint in the charcoal grey then one good coat of the creamy white paint letting dry in between coats.
Then I distressed it like crazy with a sander using 220 fine grit sandpaper.
Screw the screws into the pre-drilled holes and hang up some keys!
I love it! Doesn’t the branding look cool with it distressed?
Here it is displayed in my laundry room.
It also looks beautiful in my office.
It’s such a great way to use wood without any cutting!
I think it’s a keeper!
I promise it’s a very easy DIY project, try it!
