Ideas For Decorating With Keys

Repurposing Ideas: 5 New Uses For Keys

We're happy to present a post from Stylelist Home!

Chances are, you have a bunch of keys that are no longer useful. I have a set for a 1994 Ford Escort that I don't even own anymore. And while the emergency key to a house that my friend was renting is still kicking around, the house itself was torn down. My parents inherited a box of keys from my grandmother that no one really knows what they go to.

So what do you do with old keys? I asked around and came up with these great repurposing ideas. Which ones would you try?

  • Memory Frame
  • Young House Love came up with a great way for you to incorporate the old keys of places you and your partner or family have lived. You can mat and frame them, making a memento of all the places you have called home.

  • Key Rack
  • How ironic is it that an old key's final use is holding other keys? Just bend the keys into a 90-degree angle and mount them to a board and you'll have an awesome-looking key rack. Don't believe me? The Sierra Club has these great instructions for a completely reclaimed key rack!
