I have wanted to DIY a growth chart for Parker ever since he started walking. About a month ago, I finally got a free afternoon to knock this project out. And I love how it turned out!
I guess this vintage ruler trend was first started by Pottery Barn a few years ago, but all you have to do is Google search "growth ruler" and there are a million and one tutorials on how to make one yourself. Of course I did this after I was done, but oh well. ;) Jenny from Dear Lillie (one of my favorite blogs) makes and sells these and hers are perfection. If you have the money and want something professional, I would buy from her!
This project really wasn't too complicated, it just take a bit of patience. I took some pictures while I was making this and am thinking of posting my own version of this tutorial...who knows, haha.
The main supplies for this project consisted of a plain pine board from Hope Depot, some Danish Oil, a measuring mark and number template that I made myself, and a Sharpie. Oh and scissors, a pencil, and a ruler.
We have this in our entry and it is too darn narrow to get a shot of the whole thing from the front.
I also put out some of my fall decorations! I still want to switch out that botanical print for one a fall-themed one, but I really love how this vignette looks. I will share more details next week, most likely.
The ruler is not completely perfect, although I really tried my best. It only cost us about $8! I LOVE this project.
So, there's that. I hope you all are having a wonderful week. Sorry for my sporadic posts this week and last, I hope to get some free time this weekend to get ahead on posts.
Have a wonderful day!
