Keep it Simple plaque

Keep it simple... its a phrase Chris uses at work a LOT!  In fact he uses it so much that he asked me to make him a sign to put on his desk..... months ago.  Honestly it was so long ago that my intentions were to make it for Father's Day.  Well we know Father's Day came and went back in June so...... last week I KNEW I just had to make it. Why?  I have no idea other than I knew it was long overdue and Chris has been oh so patient.  So a humble scrape of wood underwent a change from this......

to this

Yes that is my crazy squiggly handwriting!  (and the pencil marks have been erased)  I had hoped to do a little more work on the sign by distressing it a bit but guess what?  Its gone!!

Yep you guessed it!  Chris was so excited about it that he took it to work before I considered it "finished!"  LOL  I guess that means he really likes it!


  1. Hey Peggy! :) Glad you liked my chairs! I honestly am debating on what I'm going to do with my table...I'll probably even blog about it and take a survey..I'm very torn! My hubby freaks at the thought of painting real oak wood! lol I told him the oak would still be there, it would just be gussied up! lol Right now we're using the chairs with the old table as it...trying to see if I like it that way or not. :)
    I like your sign...and apparently Chris did too! lol

  2. Cute! I love little wooden plaques.
