***Alissa asked me to let you all know that she is having a fabulous giveaway right now 
a $60.00 gift card to CSN stores so head on over to her blog 33 Shades of Green to enter!!


I'm so excited to be here at Remodelaholic guest posting again!  Thank you Cassity for having me!  Please come and visit me at my blog 33 Shades of Green.  You'll find me cooking, crafting, decorating, and trying out all sorts of creative projects.
.
The project I have to share with you today is a wrapping paper and ribbon wall rack I made for my craft room.  It was an easy and inexpensive project to make.
.
.
What you'll need:
- 36" x 24" open back frame (Mine came from Hobby Lobby and was 1/2 off)
- (5) 28"-48" cafe rods ($2.99 each @ Hobby Lobby)
- spray paint
- mounting hardware for frame
.
The cafe rods came with brass hardware that I wasn't too crazy about.
.
.
So my first step was to spray paint the ends of the rods and the included hardware.  I used Krylon in Dover White.
.
.
Before:
.
.
And after:
.
.
Much better, don't you think?
.
To paint the rods I stuck them in the ground so the spray painting would be easier.  I think my neighbors may have wondered if the rods were a new, permanent fixture!
.
.
Here's the open back frame I used:
.
.
Next, attach the mounting hardware to the back of the frame.
.
.
Attach cafe rod hardware to the front of the frame.
.
.
That's it!
.
Here's the frame hanging in my craft room:
.
.
And here it is with wrapping paper and ribbon:
.
.
.
.
.
I think it would be fun to do this with a smaller frame and use it to only for ribbon.
.
Thanks for reading - I hope you enjoyed this project!

Such a great idea!! Would be great for a closet too, where I seem to *stuff* all my wrapping paper.

Oh, I love this! It really keeps everything looking so tidy and organized. No more wrinkled wrapping paper!

Best idea I've ever seen for keeping wrapping paper and ribbon in check. Fabulous!

OH I LOVE IT!!!! I think it would also be a GREAT way to display some vintage linens in a dining room!! Thanks for sharing it with us!

This is a way better method for storing wrapping paper & ribbons than my way -- stuffed into a drawer in the office!!

Thanks for sharing your project :-)
