my pretty, sparkly keys.




When we moved in, I can't tell you how many different keys we went through to get the right one to work.  It was so annoying.  They all got mixed up.  As I was thinking about something else, my sisters, parents, and us all have the same generic key.  [Well, I purchased a turquoise hibiscus one for myself, selfishly.] Which one goes to which house?  Again, very annoying.

This is nothing new with people jumping on the DIY bandwagon, but I decided that our new keys were going to be different so people knew whose place it went to. 

I introduce you to my pretty, sparkly keys.

Super easy to do.  Paint with whatever color nail polish you wish and when that dries, add a bit of sparkle polish.  I know my Dad isn't going to like carrying this one around, but when he sees it, it will just remind him of his little Diva.

An easy, quick DIY you can knock out in less than 20 min.

This is terrific! I think I saw it on Pinterest but love it even more now that I know you have done it! :) I think I am going to take the key back from Michael just to paint sparkles on it - then give it back! :)

Let me know if the paint doesn't chip, because that's all I'm worried about!

Way cute and so much better than the boring ones you usually get. I might need to try this with my work keys; I have three different ones, and I'm always getting them confused.
