I found this project on pinterest, and I thought I could finish it on the two weeks I had off work.
After I stained it, I grabbed a ruler, tape measure, pencil, and permanent marker. I then printed off the numbers 1-6 in Century font in the size of 200.
I started the bottom at 10inches, because the board will not rest on the floor. The other websites started at 6inches.
Every inch, I used my ruler and pencil to make the markings. I hope these pictures help a bit!
The “quarter” lines are two inches long. The “eighth” lines are one inch. The number lines are 2 1/2 inches long.
For the numbers, I traced them over the wood, removed the printer paper and used the permanent marker to outline and fill them in.
I am REALLY happy with how this turned out. It didn’t take very long and I can’t wait to get it on the wall.
luckily, we have been taking Andrew’s height at my parents house, so I can move it over when the growth chart gets on our wall! As soon as the bathroom is finished, it will hang on this wall into the kitchen.
