A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Ribbon Boxes...

I'm not the most organized or neat person in the world.  But I have lots of stuff - and I like to have a place to put it.  Not everything is all matchy in my office.  If I find a container at a good price - I pick it up and make it work.  Last week I found these unpainted 2 drawer boxes at $3 each... 
I gave them a coat of paint - and now they store my ribbons.  
It's an organized mess in a small space - but it works for me...
See that plaid curtain?  It was once a bedspread.
Most of the drawers are organized by color - but this one holds the spools that I didn't want to unroll...
There's a lot going on in this office of mine - 
but at least now I can get to these pretties easier.
