Upcycled key holder


This simple yet effective makeover fitted in with my colour scheme.

Recycled items

  • Old wooden key house
  • Bird decorations from a greeting card

Also needed

  • White paint and paintbrush
  • Wood glue


  1. This old key house was passed on to me by a friend. I decided to cover the blue surface in white. To get rid of the blue, I needed to paint it four times – perseverance paid off. Allow one paint layer to dry before you apply a new one.
  2. I removed the decorations gently from a birthday card and applied them to the key house with wood glue.
