This is what we started with when we originally moved in back in June 2011.
It's kind of hard to see but we just had one of those generic cheap key racks from Home Depot or Canadian Tire or something of the like. And this little shelf that my dad made me for my books when I was eleven or something. It worked for a while but the shelf was too small and it ended up looking like this.
Which just wasn't working for me. At all. So I asked my handy husband Dan to build me a new custom shelf. He made the shelf a couple weeks back but it still needed to be stained. So that was the project for this weekend, as well as making a new key rack.
We started with staining so that we could let everything dry while we assembled the rest of the supplies and did some other house stuff.
