A Fun DIY Project Completed!

 Do you ever have a project in your mind and you just never seem to get around to it? Well, that was how this project started. I love ribbon and wrapping presents. There is nothing more fun than having the perfect gift for someone and then wrapping it in an extra special way. To me, it completes the gift...anyway, my ribbon was never in one place or organized, so here was my idea...

If you live in the south, you know what this item is, what it is used for and you probably have one hanging in your house. It's supposed to be used for a gun rack, but I had a different idea. I bought this one for $5 at a garage sale....

Painted it white and hung it correctly on the wall....

 Bought some dowel rods at Lowes and put all my ribbon on it! The entire project costs me under $10, it looks cute and is functional!
It is the start to my gift wrapping space...I hung up my sweet vintage B-day banner,  I have control of the ribbon, now for a fun tape/scissor holder and I'm ready. Watch out world, a crazy wrapper is on the loose!


  1. Great idea, love the gun rack re-purpose.


  2. I need one of these! Super duper cute!!

  3. Jodi, we purchased the Harvest Table last year and have put it to such good use. Everyone that sees it loves it and many a bride has chosen it to table scape their special menu for their reception.

  4. I just always want to finish projects. I never want to ditch them or else I feel bad.

  5. Nice post...
    Here a valuable information.
    thanks for sharing with.
