I finished this project a long time ago, but I forgot to blog about it. I had been wanting to make a growth chart since the babies started standing on their own, but it took me a while to get around to it. I decided that I wanted to make one that looked like a ruler.
I bought a 6' piece of pine at the hardware store and used a straight edge and a paint pen to create the lines, numbers and letters. I printed the numbers and letters using Microsoft Word. I printed them backwards, put the paper onto the wood, scratched the back with something hard (maybe I used a quarter?) and then drew over the transferred ink with my paint pen. The end result is really cute.
We were married in 2006. =)
