January is my favorite month to clean and organize. It is easy because all of the Christmas decorations are now put away and we have a fresh canvas for decorating. I don’t go all out with winter decorating because we don’t have a long winter here in Florida.
I like to start my cleaning and decorating with the foyer since it is the first place you see when you enter my home. I clear everything out and give it a thorough cleaning before I begin decorating. First, I’ll show you where we place our keys and dog collars. I love willow trees, so I was excited to find this metal key holder. I also love country prints and thought this one looked nice next to the key holder. It is also very welcoming!
Next, we have the table. I kept it really simple since I know I’ll be placing springtime items up here real soon!
I did make underneath the table a little more special by placing some items on top of a HollandCraft stool. First, I placed a pretty tea stained doily on top of the stool. I then filled a wire basket with a cotton sphere to go on top of the stool.
I was really excited to find this painted metal can you see to the left. It was actually on clearance. I can change out the flowers with each season!
To the right, there is a large mason jar. I’m sure I’ll fill it up with something in the near future! For now, I want to keep it simple.
Here is a full view of everything on the top:
I also love country stars so you’ll see a lot of those around my house! This bulletin board was also a nice sale item I found a few years ago. It is just something extra I can change out with the seasons! I have a few Twilight quotes here and a bible verse. Family photos shaped into circles surround the bulletin board. Another great idea is to use old calendars to cut up pictures. This is what I did on top of the board.
On top of my foyer table, you’ll find a variety of country items.
I hope you enjoyed everything! I tried to get a full view of my foyer, but that was a little difficult due to the small size of the space.
