Key Rack


  • Primer and paint (optional)
  • Paintbrushes (optional)
  • Wooden plaque
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Metal label holders with screws
  • Awl
  • Cup hooks


  1. Step 1

    Prime and paint your plaque, if desired; let dry.

  2. Step 2

    Using a ruler and pencil, make a mark on the front of the plaque 1 inch down and in from the top-left corner; repeat on top-right corner. Working your way down the plaque, make as many equally spaced marks as you'll need for your keys.

  3. Step 3

    Place the left-side hole of a label holder over the top-left mark, and use an awl to burrow into the wood; repeat on top-right mark with the right-side hole of the label holder. Drive corresponding screws into the wood. Repeat step for remaining marks.

  4. Step 4

    Center a cup hook underneath the top-left label holder, and screw it into the wood. Repeat step for each label holder.

  5. Step 5

    Insert labels describing which key is which into holders, and hang the rack on a wall.
