Found this board in my closet & thought it would work perfect for the sign Mom's wanting for her room. When painting the board I alternated antique white and pearl white paint & was pleased w/the weathered look it produced. I did the writing w/a silver/gray paint marker & then lightly dry brushed hints of black on each letter. The cross and other jewels are just old jewelry applied w/hot glue. Brushed a clear varnish & sealer in one over the whole thing & it was done in no time.
