My husband always is working on some car.
Whether it’s a junker he’s picked up off of Craigslist for a project…somebody who needs a timing belt done in the neighborhood…changing a body over…cleaning a motor…whatever.He loves it.I hate it.I don’t like the junkyard that accumulates in our yard…and how long it takes to get the junkers out of our yard once they make their way in.I also don’t like the pile of keys that always seem to end up in my kitchen…he hangs them up or puts them in a drawer…but ugh.We kind of butt heads on this…a lot.So I decided to stop being a nag about it…well at least try to bite my tongue a lot more.I love my husband and have decided to support him in his “hobby” and try to ‘cuten’ it up as much as I can.I went to Michaels and picked up a wood scrapbook frame, it will hold a 12×12 piece of art. I also picked up some pegs.
Using the fabulous Gorilla Wood Glue I added a dab of glue to each peg before sticking it in the hole. Some of those key chains get pretty heavy. I let it dry for a bit and then (I forgot to take a picture of this step) used a small 1 1/4 inch DISCHanger on the back and let that dry.
He laughed when he saw it and realized I was making an effort to ‘fix’ our little on-going back and forth about the car situation, so it made him super happy. I got the keys out of my kitchen and he has a gets a reminder of how much I love him every time he hangs up another set of keys of the latest project he’s working on.
