DIY Ribbon Rack

It's been a long time coming.  For as long as I can remember (at least the past 2-3 years *so long ago*-haha), I've been in search for a ribbon rack.  Both my Mom and I would keep our eyes peeled anytime we visited a craft store and I even jumped online a few times to see if I could find not only a decent looking rack, but a well-priced one.  No luck.  At one time, JoAnns craft stores offered a rack, although I wasn't keen on the price nor would it have been large enough to accommodate my ribbon stash.  What's a girl to do?  Insert : Pinterest.

Just another reason I love Pinterest.  Other people have done the work/searches/pins and all I did was type in ribbon rack and I discovered an awesome DIY instruction step-by-step blog tutorial on making a rack.  I followed the the instructions from Budget Wise Home and even though she designed hers as a wrapping station rack, it works just as well for a ribbon rack and is both budget friendly while satisfying my aesthetic preferences.

I did have a few changes from the instructions I followed:  I bought unfinished wood and spray painted it, along with the dowels.  I bought silver hooks because I like the look of silver hardware.  I cut the sizes accordingly to accommodate my space.  I'd have to say, for all the materials (wood, dowels, screws, hooks, and spray paint)- cost was less than $20.  With a bit of 'husband and wife' elbow grease, the rack is complete and I am more than pleased with it.
