It is painted and distressed to look vintage and rustic, then sealed with a clear outdoor sealant with a satin finish. It comes ready for hanging with a curly wire hanger. Since we use paint on our signs, all signs are one of a kind and two are never the same. **Because some paint colors tend to bleed more than others, writing looks best in white or black paint for best results.**
**This sign is made to order, so when purchasing, please include your color choice for your sign's background in the drop down menu. Made to order signs take approximately 3 weeks to be completed. I will email when your sign is packaged and has been shipped, along with tracking info as well. If you have any questions feel free to contact me via convo on Etsy.
All of my signs are distressed. I don't attempt to cover the natural wood grain, knots, etc, since it adds character to the sign and makes it unique. If you'd like to add your own custom wording to your sign, you can use this link for an additional charge. We do make our own stencils for our signs so each custom order has to be made individually and does take extra time. https://www.etsy.com/listing/156149306/custom-order-addition-for-door-signs
