Ribbon Rack

My ribbon organizational system was pretty much nonexistent.

Everything was thrown into a cardboard box that I would rummage through when  I needed something.






As a temporary solution, I organized them within the box.  
This made everything easy to see, but not so easy to get to and not so pretty to look at.





I searched online for some ideas. 
I originally didn't like the idea of it being displayed on rods, but it began to grow on me.
I showed my dad a few pictures and he designed one for me.  
Together, he and my grandpa build me this organizer.  It's quite large and heavy (made out of oak).





I sanded it up and primed it.





I gave it two coats of white paint.






The finished product!

  5. what a great idea. I'm still looking for a place where to put my ribbons. OK I'm far away from what you have, but I'm sure sooner or later my collection of ribbons will grow. At the moment mine are in a drawer, but this looks very disorderly. Your system gives me an idea how to organize mine. Thank you :)
