New Additions ~ Pink Orchid & Chalkboard Frame

I thought it would be fun to have a weekly post about new additions to our home.  These will not be big purchases at all...for the most part, just fun DIY projects or decor items I've added as we figure this home decorating thing out!  I have been wanting an orchid for a while now, but wanted to wait until after our move to purchase one.  I bought this the other day, and love it on our new kitchen shelf.  It is so bright and cheery in the morning, and is the perfect pop of pink!  I also finished a DIY chalkboard using a clearance hobby lobby frame.  I spray painted the frame in a glossy white, and used chalkboard paint for a piece of ply wood cut to size.  My sweet friend Bethany came over the other day, and I had her write this verse because she has much better handwriting than me :) 

 We had to paraphrase it a bit due to the size of the chalkboard.  But, how encouraging to know that His compassions never fail, they are new every morning. I love seeing this sweet reminder and happy little spot every morning.

I plan to use this chalkboard and shelf for fun holiday decor this Fall and Christmas.  My mind is already thinking about a great pumpkin display of some kind.  With this Texas weather, I'm sure I will be more than ready for Fall in about a month!

Do you all have any new additions to your home lately?  I would love to hear about it!  Have a great day everyone!


  1. What a great addition! Looks like your home is coming together :)

  2. I love the shelf, flower, chalkboard, & EVERYTHING else about it! It's perfect! And that is by far one of my favorite verses! I ought to put it in my kitchen somewhere so that I can see it in the morning and be reminded of God's never ending promises!
    Keep up the amazing work (:
