Trash Talkin' Tuesdays # 2

Hello, My Sisters! Hope you had a great week since we last met for some Trash Talkin'!
 
Today we're featuring a quick craft corner make over...for just about anyone who crafts, scrapbooks, sews, or "Upcycles"...like us!
 
Found this handy dandy lil' kitchen towel holder, that's supposed to hang on a wall, today at the thrift store up in Manitowoc, WI.
 
I paid a whole $1.50 for it! Whoop! Whoop!
 
The greatest part of this little wood find, is that it has a shelf inside of it...which easily slides out for a little more storage room! I love that! Don't you?!
 As you can see, I turned it upside down on itself, inverted the shelf to go the other way, and placed it nicely on the counter surface below.
 
Now...like you all, I have a ton of ribbon, lying around in different areas...needing someplace clever to go of course!
 
I've seen a lot of different crafters utilize a towel holder for ribbon storage, because it can easily be cut at length from it's round-a-bout storage area. So, when I found this wall unit today...I said to myself, "Whoa sister, BONUS BABY!"...it has a little drawer to store EVEN MORE!
How can you go wrong with even MORE STORAGE?!
 
 I screwed off the end knob...and began sliding the different ribbon rolls onto the towel dowel...and when I was finished,
it was ready to measure and cut!
 
 
  
Don't forget the EXTRA storage space below...got that full, too!
 
 
 
Seriously sisters, how can you go wrong with investing $1.50?!
 
 
 
It's definitely worth it's 'weight in ribbon' after today!
Don't ya think?!
 
See ya next Tuesday for more 'Trash talkin' with the sisters!
 
Got TRASH, that your not sure if you should keep or throw?
Talk to the sisters HERE FIRST...we'll give you ideas on what you can do with it!
 
We love to talk 'trash'...especially with our Sisters!
