Book Page Wreath and Entry Reveal

I've admired Living with Lindsay's book page wreath ever since she posted about it HERE.

Isn't that so cute!?!

Since I had some free time this weekend, I headed to the dollar store and picked up a book and a 10'' foam wreath form. Check out Lindsay's link above for step by step directions.

I was able to complete the whole wreath while watching New Moon. (I know, I know. I'm 26 years old and LOVE the Twilight series.)




Eventually, it turned into this-


While I was out picking up the wreath supplies, I stopped by World Market for their Friends & Family Sale, which was 25% of EVERY decor item. I picked up a rug that I've been eyeing for awhile. I had originally picked out this rug from Pottery Barn for our entry-

However, I hesitated at the $129 price tag. So, when I saw this one at World Market-

for $80, I was ecstatic. After the 25% discount, it came to just $60, less than half the price of the Pottery Barn one. I came right home and layed the rug down and hung my new wreath in our entry.

 Just for fun, let's take one look at the entry BEFORE:


and AFTER:


I love the detail and variations of the colors in the rug.

I hung the book page wreath, a mirror left over from our dining room redo and a carved wood piece I found at a thrift store. I also used the newly painted table that I blogged about last week.

Another close-up of the wreath-


Here's a breakdown of everything-
Rug             World Market      $60
Table          Thrifted                 $20
Curtains       BB&B                 $10 on clearance
Scroll          Kirklands             $20
Mirror         Michaels              $10
Wreath        DIY                     $2 supplies from Dollar Tree
Wood Art   Thrifted                 $3 from Savers
Hurricane    Old Time Pottery  $15
Paint            Home Depot        $15 (used on front door and table)

Almost everything used, I already had on hand.

I'm really happy with the final look. It was certainly a challenge to bring style and art into such a small entry space, but I think I was able to achieve the look I was after.

       
Hope everyone's having a great week. love, S
