This is one example of a farmhouse sign, distressed off white background and black frame.
Another common design (without a frame), this does not have any personalized name/date and makes a great gift.
Above shows a Farmhouse sign with the established date only and no name.
Above would be my personal favorite, this farmhouse sign has a dark background with antique gold letters/accent and framed out. The background is a mix between painted and stained, to bring the beauty in the wood, and artificially wormed. Wonderful antique look, but still adds a blend of traditional so to be flexible in any spot you might put it.
Above is another popular design that features a drop shadow on the letters and embellishments besides the name and date.
