I’m refraining from any Fifty Shades of Grey references here, but there are a few too many belts hanging out in my room right now. If you were here a few days ago, I was working on this little project when I discovered that I had remembered the double belt as a single belt… and I was wondering where I was going to find a larger belt than a Mens XL. Once I realized it was two belts (ding, ding, ding), I headed back to Target to pick up two ladies belts. There were tons and tons of belts, and lots were on clearance, but they were a royal pain to pick through. I finally found two matching ones – on sale – and I purchased them. They had a series of holes in them that I thought might be kind of nice.
I got them home and of course they were way too big. They should create this almost equilateral triangle on the top of the clock, but this was going to look more like a dunce hat up there – even set at the last belt hole. Pinterest fail #2.
The third time I went back I looked through the rows of belts and found three more pairs. A light camel colored set (size small this time) and a thinner reddish brown set (size medium). I also found another set of the belts with the hole pattern in a size small – the first set had been XL – and I thought that I might use the two smalls, or use a combination of a small and an XL. All I knew was I did not want to make trip #4 to Target for belts. It was getting slightly ridiculous.
I’m still undecided – but I’m leaning towards one of the two above – both form that perfect triangle above the clock.
And I just realized I’ll still be making trip #4 – to return the SEVEN belts that I don’t need. Maybe I’ll bring Fifty Shades to read while I’m waiting in the return line…
