Entry Way Décor Storage

As a serial decorator, I’ve amassed quite a trove of basic décor items.  There are the usual suspects: platters, baskets, candle sticks, etc.  From the moment we signed on the dotted line, I’d planned to store all of these items in a cabinet of some sort in the entry way and this wonderful find fit the bill perfectly.  Now that we’re in the house, it was just a matter of organizing everything in this new ‘home’.  I finally unpacked and sorted all of my décor items last week, which left me with this mess.

Although this inventory fluctuates with use, I wanted each type of item to have a specific spot in the dresser, so finding things would be easier.  I started with the larger items – vases, glass cloches, baskets and made sure they’d fit in the two cabinets.  One small drawer holds all my candles, the other has all my scentsy bars and hooks.

That large mirror – another bargain find at just $30 on a local buy/sell page – sitting on top will soon hang over the dresser.  It might get a facelift after a while, but for now it will work just fine with the dresser’s rustic finish.

I’m excited to start decorating this new space for each holiday, creating a warm welcome for our guests. So now I want to know.  Do you decorate your entry way?  If so, do you go all out or keep it simple?
