More cheap, cheap artwork

Last week I showed you my Haven sign and butterfly prints. Today I'd like to show you my skeleton keys. I don't know how or when but I started picking up skeleton keys here and there. When Mr. Steady's grandma sold her house I was able to choose a few things to keep. Among the treasures were three skeleton keys.

So when brainstorming ideas for artwork and with the revelation that one of the found skeleton keys operated our bedroom door I decided to incorporate the keys. I took two thrifted picture frames that Mr. Steady spray painted for me ($0.19 each) and hot glued wool felt to the back. Then I hot glued the keys in place, except the one that fits our bedroom door. I tied a piece of pretty ribbon to the door key and attached a pin to the cardboard so the key could be hung and removed. This is probably my favorite piece in the whole room!

  1. Great Idea, it looks wonderful! So neat that one of the keys fits your door! I love the glass knob on your door too.
    Blessed Yuletide!


I love to hear your thoughts and reflections!
