DIY Key Rack Project

This project wasn't totally DIY....just a little.  I've been wanting a key rack for a while because I'm sick of throwing our keys on the island.  A while ago, I had a Pottery Barn organizer hanging up, but I took it down when I painted and patched the [huge] holes it left in the wall.  I loved that organizer, but I think I want to use it in my office space was too dark and big for my kitchen!

I found this smaller key rack at Tuesday Morning and picked it up even though I wasn't happy with the wood color.  Our house has a weird orangey stain throughout so it's very hard to "match".  I know that everything doesn't have to match, but I at least want it to coordinate and I felt like this clashed.  For some reason, though....I still bought the key rack!

I had the key rack in a cabinet for a few months and finally decided to do something with it.  I got out some paper scraps, letter stickers, and mod podge and created something that matched our decor a little better.  What do you think?
Dixie is a great helper!
