Remember my Ribbon?

Remember my ribbon dilemma? I ended up being so frustrated, that I dumped it all in a HUGE basket and carried to my sewing room... Where it tangled and the color I wanted always ended up at the bottom... What a MESS! From the comments I received on the original post I don't think you all grasped just how MUCH ribbon I have!! I loved the dowel idea, but I would have needed many, many dowels... I went into Goodwill on Friday with a gift certificate I received from my neighbors kitties... Yes, the kitties gave me GW money for taking care of them while their family was away... They know me so well! When I walked into the store there was this white shelf/rack... Does anybody know what this was supposed to be?? It is only about 4 inches deep, I thought maybe a magazine rack, but the magazines would slip through the slots?? I decided at 6 bucks, I would bring it home and see if I could turn it into a ribbon rack...
This being the reason it is on my kitchen chair... It worked!
I LOVE it...
Now I just need my hubby to hang it!!
Oh, and it looks like I have room to buy more ribbon!!
