A couple days ago, I came across my stash of skeleton keys that I bought at an antique for a $1 each a couple years ago. I had some good fun trying them all out in my apartment's 100+ year old doorknob keyholes. (Two of them worked!) Anyway, last night I felt that a key necklace would really complete my outfit. But just stringing a key onto a chain wasn't pretty enough.
So I grabbed my metallic turquoise nail polish, picked out one of the pretty keys, and painted it!
It turned out super cute. I strung the turquoise key onto a long silver chain for a simple look. But if I want to feel more vintagey next time, I'll put it on an old chunky gold chain.
I think I'm going to be painting many skeleton keys. =)
very cute! what a clever idea!
I had a random key lying around so I painted it white! Or.. one side at least. Did you have to do one side at a time too? Love the skeleton key; mine's just a random door key with no master. (get it? ha. ha.)
Such a nice idea! I think I'm going to find some old key ;)
