Recycled Decor...

Crafting Again!
To make our home into a tranquil "beach cottage"
I decided to get creative!

Craft #1 Key Rack
For those of you who know and love me...you know I LOVE to craft! Having a home again - I wanted to decorate. Being on a budget I decided to recycle and reuse decor that I had before that Stace had packed without me knowing. The theme in my old house was different so I disassembled things and made new things out of them!

Creating was fun! Above I took this old fence like wall decor that came from Ross - purchased on clearance for $2.99; and made it into a key rack.

I took a sander to it to shabby it a bit, screwed in cup hooks to hold the keys, added scrapbooking stickers for lettering, decoupaged on some scrapbook paper, added chipboard accents and hot glued some seashells on for dimension.

Total cost - nothing - I used what I had! Total time - about 15 minutes!
