I went shopping last week in the clearance aisle of one of my favorite craft stores and came across this plaque with a metal key. It was a little dark for my taste but I knew some paint would liven it up a bit. And yes, I said this was a clearance item. Notice the little yellow sticker, I spent less than $3 for this plaque.
The key was held on with three screws so it was very easy to take the key off. I spray painted the board white and then used craft paint to paint the key green. I used Mod Podge to give the key a glossy shine.
Have you found any clearance items to refresh?
