Shonee from Hawthorne and Main has the cutest blog. You will just love her creative, yet clean style. I was really looking forward to see what she would come up with using Weatherwood. She did not disappoint, in fact I had been envisioning something similar in my own home!
Shonee knew she wanted some creative key solutions, so she came up with this beaut. I am madly and deeply in love with this simple yet beautiful key and phone storage- see how to make one:
She started with regular old pine- that's the wood with the least tannins of all stain. So the aged reaction will be the least amount. To weather the wood, simply stain wood according to the directions: sand wood with 80 grit sand paper. Make sure the wood is opened up. Stain using a foam brush, make sure to drench the wood with stain. Do not wipe off the excess, just allow it to dry.
After the stain was applied and allowed to dry, she assembled the key holder. This is probably one of the easiest shelves to put together. The shorter board is used for the back and the wider board is used for the shelf. Using wood glue and a nail gun this was super easy to put together.
Stop over Shonee's blog to see how you can add the magnets to the underside of the shelf, for this awesome key storage. While you're over there, make sure to link with Shonee on social!
