Here is a 10' PVC gutter that my DH cut down to two 5' pieces...great for ribbon and punches!
My fave thing about the ribbon is that I can take out individual spools without having to disrupt any of the others. I used to have them on dollies and that was hard when I wanted the one in the middle to take along for demos, etc.!
I got this idea way back when from someone here on SCS~~THANKS!! I had been making notes so when my space could come together I applied those ideas to my space!

Luv this idea! One question though, does it work for the larger spools of grosgrain? I thought I read on someone else's post that they're too large. I have mostly grosgrain, so I need it to fit that size.

Ok, I am convinced you have an illness - nobody can be that organized! :) This is an awesome idea! The more I look at your pictures of your beautiful space, the more green with envy I become! You are one lucky lady!

WOW! Thanks for all the positive comments!
I took a roll of my grosgrain ribbon with me to the home improvement store where I purchased the gutter---that way I could make sure that the gutter was wide enough to hold my largest spool of ribbbon---grosgrain. I found that the plastic gutters were wider than the aluminum gutters.
Also, just next to the gutters are the end caps and the brackets. I purchased 4 end caps to give a finished look to each end and I might have gone a bit overboard with the 8 hanging brackets, but I just wanted to be sure it was stable.
One other thing, in the punches gutter, I did line the bottom with white shelf liner---the foamy stuff that gives things better 'grip'. That way my punches will stay where I put them! On the very far end of the picture, bottom row, I also keep my regular and jumb stampin' around wheel holders!
Thanks again for looking and let me know if you have any other questions~
