Pretty Keys

August 9, 2011 at 5:19 am | Posted in crafts, totally random | Leave a comment

I have had one of my keys painted for a while, since my two house keys look almost identical it makes it easy to tell which one is for the bottom lock.  I decided to put some of my blue nail polish to good use, and beautified the rest of my keys.  I used a thick layer of paint, and let it dry for 90 minutes before flipping to paint the other side.  Then I added a coat of quick drying clear polish to help it last even longer.  The one key that was already painted with inexpensive polish has held up pretty well for over 3 years, and I love being able to grab the right key for the right lock without having to think about it.  I have also used polish to change the color of other small things –  I basically view it as a durable, (relatively) quick drying enamel when used for crafting purposes.
