The set of 7 was $19 with free shipping, plus the 10% discount that was emailed out last week. This was much better than the $8-10 price tag per vintage skeleton key I found at a local antique store. I ordered them late Sunday online and they were at my door on Wednesday afternoon.
I then purchased 7 mismatched photo frames from Dollar Tree and got to work.
I used some scraps of Burlap to cover the glass and superglued the keys on...
and created this display-
My original plan was to spray paint the frames all the same color but I changed my mind once I saw them on the wall. I'm digging the mismatched look.
This took less than 15 minutes to put together and was less than $25 for all 7 framed keys. I love how it breaks up the lines in our half bath. I will say that the keys are much larger than I expected, but I'm extremely happy with the final look.
What do you think?
Happy Almost Friday!
