Home Decor Altered Key Holder

Good Evening All,
I wanted to show you these pics of this altered key holder that I made. I have been seriously working on it for about 2 weeks. It was one of those projects that while I had a picture in my head of what I wanted to do it was more difficult getting the right combination of elements!! lol!
I found this key holder plaque on a clearance shelf in TJ Max or Marshalls for $5. It was kinda beat up and it was mauve and off white in color with a picture of a rowboat in the top. It also had white hooks that were attached crooked so I replace them. I repainted the frame with several coats of brown and black acrylic paint and added 2 coats of matte finish Krylon spray. I used lots of different company products, too many to try and list them all. The 1st and 3rd sentiment stamps are from SU! and the middle is from CTMH. I used BasicGrey's Origins collection designer paper. Cardstock was from my scrap pile. Most of the punches and diecuts are from SU!, Marvy, and Spellbinders. I will be hanging this in my kitchen on the wall next to the door that leads to my laundry room and garage. I am super please with how it turned out and that it is finally finished!!
Thanks so much for stoppin' by!
