Dressing up a corner

I brought this spider plant from the apartment.  It was so spindly and weak.  Once I put it in this window, I fed it eggshells, coffee grounds and fertilizer and it took off.  This cabinet isn't one of my antiques, but I can pass it off as one.  It needed something to dress it up for the holidays.

I used some old textured wallpaper that was laying around and glued it to the back of the cabinet.  I bought 3 old books from Habitat Restore for $.50 apiece and wound them up with paper lace and heavy twine, added a shabby finial and it was ready to go.  This is one of those projects that I just scrounged around to find things to put together.
