I simply laid a tape measure out to my desired length - mine was 6'8" (I am six foot and wanted to make sure my kiddos didn't out grow the chart). Then I simply marked each foot and painted the corresponding number.
I then went back and marked off every 3, 6 and 9 inches.
After everything was painted, I took my handy hand sander and gave the edges a little character - which also created a "boarder" for the chart.
And here it was a few months ago, just sitting there ready to be transformed.
So in the end I think my inspired Pottery Barn Kids Growth Chart turned out great and really for a fraction of the price! Chris over at Just a Girl featured my blog today - I am thrilled! Be sure to head over to her blog if you haven't already - it is one you will want to follow.
I wanted to thank Army Mom's Place for awarding me with One Lovely Blog Award today. It is very exciting and rewarding! Thank you, thank you.
