DIY Marble Key Hook
So I have this problem where I leave my keys in the door. Yup, that's me. I'm that person. So after being told numerous times to change my habits I think I finally figured out what might do the trick. A key hook! If I'm in the habit of putting my keys on the hook when I come inside, I'll know when I've left my keys behind to let serial killers in, copies to be made by burglars and neighbors to judge us!
So I decided to make one myself. The infatuation with marble continues so I thought a marble tile and some gold hooks would be so nice. Soooo niceeeeee...
First step is to measure out where you want your hooks. This depends on how many hooks you want and the size of your tile. I went with three, and though this tile is supposed to be 6 inches, it was 5.75 inches. Thanks tile maker. Thanks for making me have to do actual math. Not.
I marked where I wanted my hooks to go, deciding to place them further down on the tile instead of centered. I made sure to measure the length and width. Remember to measure twice when doing this!
Then put a small amount of construction glue in the center of my hooks. You don't want to put too much so it blobs out the side.
Then you place your hooks. I used a small nail to clean up the little bit of glue that did end up blobbing out. You have a bit of time to adjust the hooks, so make sure you get them just right.
Then you just apply your Command Strips to the back. I went with three medium strips. You might want to trim them a little bit. I found after that you could sort of see the top of the strips when it was on the wall.
Attach it to the wall and there you go! Your very own key hook!
I sincerely apologize for the grainy photos here. No matter what I did I could not get good lighting in this corner of my house.
