Tags: color your house keys
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.
