I lucked up and got some of these craft wood plaques at sale for 70% off. The total price was only $1.50 each. I bought four of them and left 2 for someone else to have the pleasure of snagging. My intentions are to paint them or stain them and paint a cute/smart/class/good descriptive word on each one. Example: Home, Relax, Coffee. So my question to you is what would you put on them?

I have thought in the past of looking up family coat of arms and putting them on similar wooden plaques.

My daughter did that a few years ago as a birthday present for me. She looked up my family coat of arms from our ancestral home in Scotland, and then painted the coat of arms on a piece of wood. It turned out beautiful.

The imagination is limitless when it comes to what to do with those squares. You have good ideas. Maybe a picture to go with the word.

That would work too! Eat! with a picture of a plate and fork! Cook with a picture of a frying pan and bacon sizzling. Yes, great idea.

@just4him I could do a whole series on coffee! I could also do a smiley face out of coffee beans!! Also 3 piece set connected with 1) I 2) heart shape for Love and then 3) coffee cup or coffee spelled out. I need to get a notebook out now to record all these good ideas!

It could work out well if I have all the supplies I already need to make them. I have a couple of colors of stain and the paint. If I do the fleu de lis, I need a stencil which could be used for other projects too so a good buy. I am excited now over this project. I want to go find some more of them on sale. They were not on sale at the stores here in my area in MS.

@kareng I often check online to buy the supplies I need, I prefer not to stay longtime inside the stores.

@LadyDuck I agree! The store I got them at has clearance table right as you walk in the store. I was only adding money to discount gas card so very fast in and out.

@kareng Are you wanting them to be a set. Or just stand alones? That would make a difference. As a set you could do faith, love, joy, things like that. Those could also stand alone as a single focal point.

@wolfgirl569 I like that idea!! I could even glue them together and connect them. Thank you! Now I need to go find more of these!! Actually we will be passing that store on the way to BR tomorrow!! Cool!

@DocAndersen I will. I am not sure when I will get on this project as we have rain through next Tuesday so don't want to paint or stain with the extra high humidity. I also have to spend another day dealing with mom's banking fiasco and get her social security check re-routed to new bank account.

Looks like you have some good suggestions. I'm pretty much clueless. Are you married? You could put the two names and the date of your marriage.

Yep, all good suggestions! I'm ready to get going on it now but I may have to go get a new stain. I think one that I have though will work. I do want a fleu de lis stencil though for @DianeN's suggestion!

A plaque. Key holder. Decorations. Can I just use it as cutting board?

A cutting board won't work as it is not a solid piece. The back is cut out. A key holder is another cute idea!

I'd put Livin for the Weekend on one of em. I would stain the wood not paint it. Just me is all.

I don't think that would fit! Boards are only 8 by 8 inches. Weekend wouldn't fit across I don't think, not in a size that would be easily readable.
