        I am a teacher and was just re-reading this thread and saw I used the wrong write. It should've been right!!!! How embarrassing! LOL!

        I am going to go to Michael's this weekend to get supplies!!!! Did you use black as the base coat?

          Yes I used the black base coat...you can also use brown base coat but they were out of brown when I went. You can either use white crackle or cream. Though my colors are ivory the cream was a bit too yellowish. I got the Valspar brand but there are others. If you want it to look even more rustic you can get a piece of sand paper and just sand out edges...that gives it a sort of weathered look but be careful if you sand away too much it looks botched. I was looking up signs last night and came across someone selling the whole set of paint brushes, sign and pail on etsy for $99! I was like holy cow it costs less than 1/4 of that to make it.

            Very nice! I've always loved that look. It's very classic.
