I have done wooden signs for yrs.It is very easy,and with the shabby chic and americana that is so popular right now the shabber the better.
Make sure your wood is sanded really well and if you can't paint the words well look online for paint pins.They are like a marker but with paint in them.
Also surf the american web, becouse the country signs have been going strong for yrs there and will keep going.
Lots of american craft sites have signs. You can get ideas there.
You can also surf for paint finishes as well
Just remember to have fun and don't worry if you mess up.You can always paint it over.:)
