Ribbons and Paints all in a Row..

Thanks for Sharing!

First off… you guys have to check out the AMAZING 10 Ten Projects at the DIY ClubAwe Inspiring stuff!

So I’ve had a basic shelf sitting in the garage since we moved here over 3 years ago.  I bought this shelf at Michael years ago.  It needed a face-lift and a purpose… and I was in need of some ribbon and acrylic paint organization. 

I had a wooden dowel that I measured the thickness of and then drilled a hole slightly bigger on each of the shelves corbels.

Then I primed and painted it all a creamy white.

Now all my ribbons and acrylic paints have a home…

Before all my ribbon was stashed in a basket… what a mess!

Love organization!

  1. EEK! I just love what you've done with this, especially the quote! So perfect. I recently did something similar with my paints, but no ribbon storage yet. Scroll down on my blog to see. Love the pop of color in the artwork hung above your storage. Makes it seem like one big piece and also inspires you to paint! xx,

  2. This looks great! I have something similar in my garage for all my ribbons to be hung and it's the best thing ever to be able to just run out and grab a piece and cut it off without dragging out boxes of ribbon like I used to. Great post.

  3. I'm feeling very jealous. I have mine in a drawer on a dowel but I love your display. I'd be wrapping presents like mad with that set up!
