Key Wall

Well, summer has certainly arrived in the desert SW
AZ has been hovering between 105-109 this week
So, I thought I'd do a little project inside

Over the past several weeks I have collected a few pieces
To go with some family pieces I've had for 20-30 years.

I decided to create a key wall in my entry way

I found this chicken wire basket at Sweet Salvage in April
It seemed perfect to go with the chicken wired frame I found 

I purchased this vintage door plate on etsy from Latvia
And the blue/green bird drawer pull at a yard sale
I love the bird, he is just so sweet

I've had several sets of vintage door knobs
From homes we lived in that I finally decided to decorate with
I put them in the basket 
Along with a few old keys

Had to add one of my favorite rocks :)

Found this cool key at a yard sale for $1

And this really neat vintage school house key
It was a bit pricey (sweet salvage) 
But definitely worth it
It's about 7 inches long, fairly heavy and oh so vintage

The above frame was found at a thrift store 
For just a couple $$
I painted it and added 2 vintage skeleton keys from my husband's aunts home
Then added another door plate I got from etsy (Thanks Susan)

Another little set of reproduction keys 
Hanging from an old finial

Everything put together makes a fun
Entry way wall vignette

An area that I really like and feel very comfortable with

Glad it has been so hot outside

It forced me to 'pull it all together'

I hope you are enjoying a beautiful weekend
Wherever you are
Find something and
Consider It All JOY!!

  1. I LOVE your key area, Cindy. It looks great and that big schoolhouse key was a REAL find. They must have left those in the door on a semi-permanent basis because I can't imagine someone carrying a huge key like that around in their pocket!;>) xo Diana

  2. Very nice. You did a great job putting this all together. Enjoy.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

  3. Your vintagy items are all so charming, Cindy! You've created a sweet tablescape and lovely wall display.

  4. Cindy, what a fun idea! It looks great! (Glad you're enjoying that key plate-I was tempted to keep it-lol!)


Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
