Wrap and ribbon center

I don't have a wrapping center, but I'd love to have one. Centsational Girl made a new gift wrap / ribbon center for herself and I love it - I'm in deeeeep envy.

But I don't think it will work for me and here's why. I have way-doggies more paper and ribbons. I mean WAY-DOGGIES more.
I usually store my wrapping paper in these boxes ... all standing at attention like long skinny soldiers, jammed together like sardines. It's not elegant, but it works.

During the holidays, this was how I stored the holiday paper. It kept the paper handy and it's not as ugly as a Craftsman weed-whacker box!

This is how I've been storing my ribbons.

So many ribbons.

A veritable mountain of ribbons.

Okay, maybe it's a leetle teensy obsession.

SIGH. I luv me some ribbons.

Sooooo - I think maybe something between Martha (picture below) and CG would work for me - basically - big honking frame with rods for the ribbons.

And I think maybe something like this under-the-bed arrangement I found on Apartment Therapy would work for the paper. Looks neat. And it's not a weed-whacker box.

Whatcha think?
