I have been meaning to post this for awhile now but I just haven’t had time! I am finally sitting down to share a little DIY project I did a few weeks ago. I have always love old grain sieves so when I came across one for a good deal I grabbed it. I actually didn’t know what I was going to do with it at first. I tried hanging it on the wall in different places. I just couldn’t find the right spot. Then an idea hit me! I decided to make a little key hanger out of it and hang it by the back door.
The supplies you need are just
- An old sieve
- Scrap wood
- Chalk paint
All I did was measure the width of the sieve and cut the wood to size. I actually cut the wood at a slight angle (a little wider in the front because of the shape of the sieve). Next I painted the piece of wood and then screwed in hooks to the bottom of the piece of wood. I then wedged the piece of wood in the middle and thats it! I didn’t nail it or anything and it works just fine.
On the shelf I added a vintage candle holder that I have been looking for a place for. I think it adds a nice touch!
I love how it turned out! Its so great when you can use vintage items for practical purposes. Now we have a great place to keep our keys and it blends right into my decor. I haven’t been feeling especially inspired lately so this was a nice little project for me. It allowed me to stretch my creative muscles a little bit with out trying to do a large project. Hopefully you will look at these little grain sifters the next time you see one and maybe try this yourself! I hope you enjoyed this little DIY and thank you so much for stopping by!
