Ribbon Organizing Again...Tension Rods

Hi All...working in my sewing room again and moved my ribbon organizing system, so I thought I would share some pictures.

Here is the old way...I loved it and worked great, but I needed the shelf!!

It's just tension rods inside a bookshelf!!



I added a yard stick and scissors for easy measuring and cutting.


Tension rods...love them for so many things!!


Here's the new way to organize spools ribbon...


Between the legs of my cutting table. Definitely an unused space.


Even works great on the curvy areas.




Lots of space on both ends of the table too!!


Look for crazy unused space in your work area. You might be surprised where you can squeeze things in!!

Have a great day,
~Karen~

  2. Okay... I loved the first idea--in the bookshelves, but the second is brilliant! I adore using otherwise "unusable" space. This rocks. Oh, and I'm an Army wife, so I'm well acquainted with spring tension rods.

  4. Wow - talk about finding unused space - that's amazing. I'd never have thought to use that spot. Very clever and now you have more room for fabric on your shelves! I

  6. That is a very cute idea. However, if I tried it and an end got loose, I can only imagine the fun Dolly would have unwinding the whole spool, LOL. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Wonderful idea! I will get right to it, since it will allow me to eliminate one more box of crafting stuff. Thanks!

  8. I like the idea. I also like how your sewing area is a work in progress like mine where you continue to find ways to improve it.

  9. I love it Karen. I just added a tape measure to the front of a shelf right below my ribbon collection on a dowel rod. It is very convenient.

  15. What a fantastic idea! I need this in my sewing room. I don't have many spools of ribbon, but they would look so cute displayed this way.

  16. I love this idea! I'm a scrapbooker and ribbon storage takes up a lot of space, so I'll definitely use this when I reorganize my space.

  21. I like this idea but your cat(s) must not be naughty. My cats would steal the pins right out of the ribbon and then steal the ribbon. I have to keep my pins in covered containers.
    They are such thieves!

  24. I just re-organized my closet this afternoon. I used the tension rod idea for my ribbon! I am so excited because I can see it all and access it a lot easier! thanks for the tip!

  25. Where in the world did you find them skinny enough to go through the holes in the ribbon spools?
    My biggest problem is that the whole dowel that they are currently on turns and the rest of my ribbon all unrolls as well. Drives me nuts! LOL

  26. Great idea! You could even mount a yardstick on the edge of the table just above the ribbon.
