boxes and organizing

So while I thought all of the boxes were unpacked and taken care of, I walked in one evening and found this lovely stack in the corner of my living room. My husband was organizing the garage and now that all of the Christmas stuff is put away, it was time to really decorate the house. These are the boxes specifically full of decor type items. Yikes!
I was really feeling quite organized as we moved into this new house. I even have drawers in the kitchen that look like this.
I've done the best I can with organizing the drawers and the closets.
So I guess it's time to start tackling some decorating in the house. Not sure why it intimidates me so much.
Not quite sure how I feel about this mantle, but I had some pictures I know I want hung in the den, and there were hooks on the walls already, so I made do...for right now.
What do you think?

And for the good news. We finally listed our old house and it sold in the first day, to the very first buyer that walked in the door for more than the asking price! We feel like that is a definite answer to prayer.
