When choosing what type of rustic decor you want to add to your home, rustic signs should be at the top of your list. Whether a farmhouse or cabin, a rustic sign is a perfect accent. Rustic signs can be anything from an old building sign to a handcrafted custom message. A handcrafted message can be as simple as a word like Kitchen or Laundry to basically label a room. However, messages that are inspirational have a couple of benefits. The sign itself will be warm and appealing just from the distressed look of the wood or metal. But, on top of that, the inspirational message will also uplift your spirits every time you look at it.
My favorite rustic sign is the one that has one of my favorite Bible verses on it. This was a custom sign that I had purchased on Etsy and I just love it.
Besides Etsy, I have also found so many signs that I like on Amazon which also has some of the best prices. You can click on any of the signs to get more information if you are interested in buying one.

DIY Rustic Signs
If you would prefer to save even more money, there is no reason you can’t make your own sign. Pallets are popular to use in DIY projects and are fairly easy to come by. Many businesses will have a stack of pallets outside that you can ask about. Most pallets are safe to use in the home but if you’d like more information on safety, check out my post on How To Pick Pallet Wood. If you would like a sign like the Amazon example, just use a variety of stains to color the wood. Then if you are good at free hand painting, you can paint on your desired words. Otherwise, if you are like me, you can easily use stencils to make your words.
Other types of salvaged wood to use for signs include barn wood and any other reclaimed lumber. See some ideas at Rustic Decorating With Salvaged Wood, including a DIY rustic sign example.
