Some times a person just needs to changes things up. These keys are painted and made from several wooden garage sale and auction house finds:

 

I bought this shelf at a garage sale and rescued the spindles from it:

then I found some wooden beads…

and some napkin and curtain rings:

So I made them into “keys”:

I decided to spray paint them. I wasn’t at home so I ended up using a shed as a paint booth:

I really love using Lumiere acrylic paint – especially the “halo” kinds where two different colours show up depending on which way the light hits the paint. This paint is actually for fabric; I’ll have to try that some time! Here are the first keys I’ve painted:
