skeleton key project

For the past few months I've been collecting old skeleton keys. I just love the vintage look of them. When I saw these from Pottery Barn I knew exactly what I could do with them..


Last summer I picked up this PB shadow box frame at a yard sale for $3.




Here are a bunch of keys I've collected. I found a few at Hobby Lobby too!



I arranged them in the shadow box and then used a little hot glue to secure them... Here it is! I plan on hanging it with some family pictures I'm framing for a little photo wall over my stairs.

  1. Great Idea! I have some keys that I picked up in Italy last year at a flea market. You gave me some inspiration to do something with them!

  5. I've actually been collecting keys for a while, but have never figured out what to do with them. This is such a great way to display them!
