Painted Keys Tutorial!!

DIY Blinged Out Keys

I don’t have many keys on my key ring, but the few that I have caused me to waste a few seconds of my life everyday. I literally stand at the front door, flipping through each key looking for the one I need to unlock the door.

I needed a quick and cheap solution. Germaine was having the same problem so he went out and bought these, but I wanted something more feminine and personalized so I decided to do-it-myself.

I had some nail polish I have been trying to use up before it dries out, but I don’t think I’ll use it in time. I give myself a fresh pedicure and manicure every week, but that’s still not often enough to use up the amount of nail polish I own. Some of my favorite colors are already beginning to thicken up so I thought, why not use them on my keys.

This project took me about fifteen minutes start to finish and everything I used I had on hand.

Each key got a different color and design. Each design will help me quickly distinguish which key is for which lock.

Each key was coated with two coats of nail enamel. Because I know how easy nail enamel chips, I decided to add a final coat of polyurethane. Polyurethane works similar to a clear top coat of nail enamel, only it protects much longer.

I just adore how cute my keys turned out.  How about you? Do you like it or no?

    Like it? no. Love It? YES! I Don’t know how I accumulated so many keys on my key ring but this is the answer to my prayer. Why didn’t I think of this. We bought an old RV this summer so now I have even more keys to sort out.
    Thank you for making my life a little smoother.
