Dictionary Page Wallpaper & Chalkboard Walls

Our entireway originally had dateed, old paneling on the walls.  We needed a thrifty way to improve the appearance, so I used a vintage dictionary to paper to walls, and made one wall as an "focal" wall with chalkboard paint.  Then I brought in bunches of vintage and antique items to decorate the space!

Cost?  About $70 to remodel this room.
