My grate idea!

My grate idea!


This was a very simple project.  I took a flat cheese grater and wired an old grain scoop to it which had been cleaned, embellished with a number, and poly'd.  I attached an old key, and wa-la!  It cost me $1 for the cheese grater and $2 for the grain scoop.  The key was in a set of old keys I purchased so it maybe cost me $.25.  Great to use in an entryway or mud room to hold your keys.  Can also be used in an office to hold paper clips, or just put a votive candle it in.  Cheap and easy project.
