Ribbon organizer

This little project has been on my list for quite a while. My ribbons are out of control and I need help controlling them.

Out in the garage I found some scrap wood and went to work. I cut a 1x4 long enough to fit under my cabinet that holds all my craft supplies. It was about 35 inches. From another scrap piece I cut two ends and rounded one side using a can to make the curve.

After I cut the rounded ends there were these triangular pieces left over. So I thought I would use them for the pieces that will support the dowel.
I used a 3/8" drill bit to make the half circle notches in the supports. (That is what the dowel will sit down into.)
After gluing and nailing the ends on, I just used glue to put the triangle supports on. Then I used screws to attach it under the cabinet.
I did have to purchase a 3/8" dowel. I Slid the rolls of ribbon on and look what I have...

Now, I haven't painted it because I am still holding out for a laundry room makeover. I didn't know what color to paint it. I left it unfinished but hopefully soon I will be doing a makeover on that room. I can paint it then.
What do you do with your ribbon?
