Thrift Store Chic Living Room

Molding above fireplace was a DIY project.
Wreath was made from a thrifted novel. Lots and lots of gluing and a few burned fingers later, I love it.

Here's another DIY twist on the paper wreath idea. This wreath is made up of vintage pages of a novel. The scale of this paper wreath is dramatic — there are layers and layers of rolled pages glued together.More: Decorate Your Door for ChristmasMake a Candy-Cane Striped Wreath

The thought of tearing the pages out of a book are ingenious. It has a great modern twist on it but still has that, at home feel. Because its a copy of your favorite novel.
