Hello Glitter, Glue & Paint Readers!
I'm Erin from Magenta & Lime, where I share my diy projects, home improvements, and all kinds of life along the way. I'm here today to share with you this cute little key/sunglasses holder that I like to call the Grab-and-Go board. Cheesy, I know, but I love it.
This project was super simple and inexpensive. I actually had everything I needed lying around, and it took me about 20 minutes. Here's what you need:
1. Piece of wood.
I used a scrap piece of 1x8, but you could do any size you want, depending on how much you want to store.
2. Fabric of your choice.
I chose a duck cloth in green chevron from Hobby Lobby. This is leftover from the barstools I re-covered back in September.
3. Piece of Ribbon
The length should be the width of the board, plus a little bit extra to wrap around. For instance, I used about 14" of ribbon for this board.
4. Cup Hooks
As many as you want to hang up keys
5. Cup Pull
This is a drawer pull that you can get for about $5.
6. Tools: Staple Gun, Staples, Power Drill/Screw Driver
To get started, cut your fabric to size and wrap it around the board like you would a present. Staple the fabric down so it is tight.
Then, wrap your ribbon around the board at the top and staple in the back. I also stapled it once on each side to keep the ribbon tight when sunglasses are hanging from it.
Measure where you want each cup hook, make a small cut in the fabric on that spot and drill a hole a little bit. Then, screw your cup hooks in.
Finally, drill holes for your cup pull, and screw it in place. I love this addition to the board because it's a great place to stash your chap-stick or even some loose change. Depending on the size of your board, you could even add a few cup pulls for more storage.
Keep this next to the door, either hung on the wall or sitting on a table and everything is right where you need it for when you leave the house.
I hope you love it as much as I do!!
Thanks for having me, Denyse! I hope the packing and moving is going well!
