Wine Rack Thingy Turned Ribbon Organizer

I got this at GW last week for a couple bucks.  I'm not really sure what you'd call it.  It's got a Napa Valley logo embossed on one end.  I guess it's used to transport the wine.  I'm not a wine drinker (I'm a beer kinda gal) so I really don't know.  I took a before photo, but did so without having the memory card in the camera.  DOH!  I found this photo on ebay.

I pretty much knew right away what I was going to do with it.  For a couple of years now, I'd been trying to figure out how I wanted to store my ribbon.  I knew this would be perfect for the job.  

I just painted it white and distressed.  It looks right at home in my studio.

As you can see, ribbon is kinda sparse around here these days since Han has taken to wearing it in her hair.  I'm just glad she's still young enough to think that's cool.  She starts middle school next year.  Urg...

  1. Fabulous idea!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. That's cute!
    It's perfect!
    Be glad Han still loves ribbons in her hair!
    Take lots of pictures of her now (with the card in) to remember her this way :)
    I hope you're having a sunny day despite our gloomy weather!
    PS. I need to respond to your email! I haven't forgotten, I promise!

  3. That's so cute! I could really use this!

  4. I have one of these but it doesn't have the dividers. Maybe I can use dowels to hold the ribbon in place. Nice idea!

  5. Saw your post at Reinvented and wanted to stop by and tell you I like it!! Great idea!

  6. I love it! I need to keep my eyes on the lookout for something like that.. I have all my ribbon in a box & it's always a mess! Thanks for sharing with us at the POPP.

  7. Great idea.. My daughter will be in 8th grade, and she will wear ribbons every now and then...

    Thanks for joining Get Your Craft on Thursday at Life As Lori... Please join me next week for another great party!

  8. Great minds think alike! I have that exact same box. It was a CD holder. A few months ago I put all our CD's in a binder and tossed the box in the craft room to reinvent later. When I finally got around to trying to find a good use for it I did exactly what you did! It makes a great ribbon holder.

  9. That's a great idea. My ribbon get all tangled up. I need to make one of those!

  10. I would have never thought to use it that way! Genius! SO pretty! :)

  12. That looks great, I've been trying to think of ways to store my ribbon... visiting from my backyard eden.

  13. This is such a good idea. My ribbon is all tangled up in a drawer right now. Thanks for the inspiration!

    And thank you for linking this up to A Little Creative Therapy with Life in the Pitts, as well.

  14. I saw this post over at Finding Fabulous and had to tell you what a great idea I think you have here!

  15. I just want to come and craft in your room!! Thanks so much for linking up!!
