My office has two different locks with two almost identical keys. I often try to open the door with the wrong key and it frustrates me to no end. So I found a simple solution to my problem: color-code the keys by painting it with nail polish! I use inexpensive, old or streaky new polish for this purpose.
YOU WILL NEED
> Nail polish
- Separate keys and lay them on a napkin or newspaper to protect your working surface
- Paint the head of the key with nail polish. Do not paint the blades.
- Let it dry. It would take about 10 minutes.
I find this simple way of painting keys extremely useful. I never unlock the wrong lock and I spend less time fumbling in my huge bag because I don’t mistaken my office keys with my house keys anymore.
Do you have any old nail polish lying around? Will you try this project?
