I wanted a fresh look, and was drawn to these colors. (Ralph Lauren brand California Poppy GH170 & Manila GH154) They were the only ones that my husband and I agreed on, and they really brighten up the room! The new flooring helps, too! It's just *hot* without window treatments right now!
Ribbon holder is Rubbermaid 18 in W 4 tier door/wall rack - Item # 62418. It was 12.50 at my Home Depot. We cut it in half so that it would fit under the shelving. Beate has the twin. :D
I did add 4x? pieces of matboard to keep the ribbons from sneaking through the slats. It was not needed, but looks much better with them all level.
