DIY Custom Painted Keys | Sea Lemon


I’ve been wanting to customize my plain keys
for awhile now. I finally decided to paint them which makes it easy to tell them apart.
I want to show you guys my process and share some ways you can customize your keys too. Nail polish is a quick and easy way to decorate
your key. Just paint it on the top portion. Paint two coats if you need to. A spool of thread makes a nice holder for
your key dry. If you don’t have many colors of nail polish,
you can try acrylic paint too. I’m making a stripe pattern using tape for this one. After it’s all dry, put a clear top coat nail polish on to make it durable. Another option is to use a sharpie to make
your design. I’m going to make a leopard print pattern on this one. For designs made with a sharpie, use a clear acrylic varnish to help seal in your design, otherwise the sharpie ink will rub off. Don’t use clear nail polish on sharpie ink though, it will make the ink
smudge and bleed. Make sure to let the keys dry for a few hours
or overnight. I hope you have fun customizing your own keys!
