Description

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle

Often attributed to Plato, this quote is thought to come from Scottish author Ian Maclaren, (pseudonym of Rev. John Watson).

The PERFECT sign for your family room, kitchen, bedroom, classroom or even the boardroom.

Completely hand painted on a quality pine board, this sign is BLACK with WHITE letters. It is then distressed and antiqued for an aged, vintage finish. We make no attempt to cover natural wood markings, knots etc. as we feel this adds to the character of the sign. It has a sawtooth hanger attached for easy hanging. Since this sign is hand painted and then distressed, no two are exactly alike.

Sign measures approximately 18" tall x 11-1/4" wide x 3/4" thick.

* It is intended for indoor use only. *

This listing is for one (1) sign.

Almost all my signs are painted once ordered. Please check the Shipping and Policies tab for the "Ready to Ship In" time anticipated for your particular piece.

If you do not see your country listed as a Ship To location, please contact me for a shipping quote.
