We bought a new house this summer and we’ve been slowing working on making it our own. That means endless trips to Lowe’s (and Joann’s and Micheal’s). A lot of time I’m left wandering around. The other day while in the hardware aisle, nestled across from the endless wall of screws, was a section for hanging pictures.
While looking for something to hang some plates, I discovered these.
I thought to myself….”Huh, self. You can totally use these, can’t you?!” And I bought a pack of four for $2.23 (Lowe’s gives a 10% military discount!).
I put them on my desk and forgot about them until last night when I was putting together my NCW and ran across them. I decided to try them out, the whole aesthetic sort of fit the steamy sort of feeling I was working with.
They were very easy to attach using my rivet press and a 9mm rivet. I opted for the larger rivet because I was fastening a couple layers of vinyl in the wallet wings. I just threaded the d-ring through, capped the rivet, and set it.
Now it’s a very unique and really secure little wristlet strap holder. I could probably put one on the other side as well and attach a cross body strap. I’m going to play around with them some later. It’s nice because when there is not a strap attached, you can fold the ring out of the way. I actually tucks in tight against the wing.
The final wallet turned out perfect. It’s a match to my Nora set, which I hope to have posted soon.
