Key Holder DIY + Tutorial

We have found out over the past several weeks that we are living with a key thief.  A very cute, very adorable key thief, but a key thief nonetheless.  I don’t think I appreciated how tall she has grown until I watched her from afar stand on her tip toes and grasp at the cute potted cactus in the above photo that was positioned a good 6″ away from the ledge.  With those same tippy toes and grabby arms, she has managed to swipe both Aaron and my keys on multiple occasions, so we’ve been in the market for a solution.  A …
