made of a board pulled from a pallet, spray painted black, then painted with a brush in Valspar Antique White Eggshell, two coats. While the sign was drying I printed the letters in Times New Roman (just the outlines to save ink) and cut them out, traced on to the board, and then painted with black acrylic paint the letters. After that dried, I simply took a power sander to the sign.
How to make an antique sign. After painting the sign (full tutorial included), use a soft cloth to apply a dark brown furniture wax in a thin layer to entire surface of sign. The wax will settle in the imperfections in the wood, giving the sign an authentically aged look. Allow wax to dry for 3-5 minutes, then buff to a shine with a clean cloth.
