This way, I was able to design, build, and assemble my own rustic farmhouse sign from scratch in just a few minutes, while spending less than $15! What's more, I chose to create signs that can easily be changed, with new messages, images, and motifs that can be added to them whenever I feel like it. This makes my farmhouse wood framed signs more versatile, allowing me to change them up for, say, the holiday season, at a moment's whim.

Tools & Materials
Compared to some of my other Hometalk projects, these farmhouse signs actually require a larger number of tools and materials to get right. If you're no stranger to DIY projects, then you will likely already have most of the tools already lying around in your house - at least I did! If not, most of the materials can be purchased from Home Depot or the Dollar Tree for just a few bucks. So, ere is everything you will need to create your own DIY farmhouse wood signs:
- Two 1x2x8 furring strips - I bought these from Home Depot for a couple of bucks apiece.
- Two 2ftx2ft plywood project boards - I found mine in a materials bin in Home Depot, where they were selling for five dollars.
- A large buzzsaw
- Dark walnut Rustoleum Wood Stain.
- Linen white Rustoleum Chalk Paint.
- A box of small finishing nails (you will need at least 20 nails per board).
- A nail gun (a hammer will also do the job just fine).
- 2 peel-and-stick wall decals from the Dollar Tree.
