I got this idea after visiting a friend who recently had a baby. They had purchased a wooden growth chart to display in her nursery and measure her milestones. I love the fact that it isn’t permanent (like the door jam, where my hubby’s family measured their height) and that we can use it for all 3 kiddos.
Like I all too often do I uttered the famous “Oh, I can do that” and 3 months later finally finished the project. Now this is a VERY easy project and should only take a few hours to complete, but I couldn’t decided what I wanted it to look like, where I wanted it to hang and then as usually life happened. Anyway, here is how you can create your very own growth chart to watch your little ones grow!
1. Cut the wood to desired length. We are a tall bunch so we cut it at 6’4.2. Give it a good sanding to make sure it is smooth. Use a router to create detailed edges (hubby did this for me.)3. Spray paint. I used Rustoleum Antique White and used 2 coats.
4. Mark measurements using ruler & laser guide5. Paint desired design, then paint measurement markers.6. Add numbers (I used my Circut, but you could paint them or use stencils).7. Finally add your kiddos names & proudly displayOverall a very easy & cheap project (it cost me $12).
