hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

I knew that would get your attention… and I just couldn’t resist (Jess is most likely wanting to kill me right now!) [This is Jess, and yes, I’m red with embarrassment right now.] Today’s we’re talking about my need for hooks.
I’m a scatterbrained mess.
I’m always looking for my keys, sunglasses, Blackberry. A few weeks ago, I lost not one, but two sets of car keys and ended up stuck at the house while Eric went to work.  I was beyond frustrated at Eric with myself.
Then, I had an idea…
I was going to make a place to keep my keys! I had just been to the Flea Market that Jess posted about, and had an empty gold frame.
 I’m not a fan of gold, so I whipped out some Valspar Black Satin spraypaint (I think I have about 15 colors of spraypaint on hand at all times).
 I also keep big boxes around to spraypaint on… I’ve painted the grass one too many times for the hub’s liking.
   Once I told Eric what I was making, he was a happy camper!
 I ran to Lowe’s while the paint was drying and grabbed three little hooks for less than $3.00 each.
 Oh Snap! The Keys didn’t fit!
Wait… a quick little turn of the frame and…
 Voila!
Instant Key Hook{ers} that perfectly almost fit!
 Here’s the view out our back door leading to the garage (thinking that I will remember to hang them up as I come in the door).
The key hooks are really helping, but I will admidt at least once a week I hear, “Monica, there’s only one set of keys on the hooks…”  UGH… I’d be amazing with half a brain!
 And I’ve had a few requests for a tutorial on how to make this message board, so that will be coming soon!
So, be honest… do you need any hook{er}s too?

    I NEED HOOKERS TOO! Honestly the title made me crack up! This is such a great way to make a key rack looks nice! I might have to do one now too since we’ve been struggling to figure out our key system in our new place!

    I’m visiting from Funky Polkadot Giraffe! I would love it if you checked out my blog plus I have a giveaway going on right now!

  3. Gals, I dig your sassy style! Love, the clever “hook” and your witty repartee! Great, creative solution to the lost key dilemma as well! Such a pleasure to have you share your creativity on “A Little Birdie Told Me…” at Rook No. 17! I hope you’ll swing by and join the party again this week!

    Best,
    Jenn
