|There were actually three rows of ribbon and I was getting ready to add a fourth!|
What I liked about this set up:
– I could see all my ribbon at once.
– Okay, that was really it. There was nothing else I liked about having them on the wall.
What I did not like about it:
– It takes up a lot of wall space.
– The ribbons would get dusty.
– Sometimes a ribbon would just fall off the spool.
– If I wanted to use ribbon somewhere other than my craft room I had to take the whole thing down and half the ribbons off to get to the one I wanted.
So I started doing some research on different storage options. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money (let’s say under $5) and the new storage needed to address my concerns above while still allowing me to see all my ribbon at once. Pretty tall order, right? I actually found so many great ideas. You have to love google image!
I love this idea because each individual spool can be taken out easily. Since spools are not hanging on a rod then you don’t have to worry about the ribbon falling off them either. But, this didn’t really save any space for me and it is not a cheap project when you figure in all the end cap pieces for the gutter. So, onto option #3.
We have a winner!! :)
