Height Chart

We have moved a lot and I mean a lot.

By the time we started having children we slowed down on moving, but in saying that my son is 9 now and has lived in 8 different houses already. With only 4 of them being our own home we have braved the rentals also. So the one thing I always wanted to do of marking a door frame with my kids heights was a no go for us. When Jack was little I started a fabric wall hanging that we used as a height chart but the fabric became dirty. Not being able to wash it in fear of some height marks washing off was making it look a little gross so I finally made a wooden take with us chart.

My sister loved our height chart and put an order in for a Bell family one so I thought I would show how it was done. Tan’s furniture is a darker brown so I use the same darker stain as the stool but added some water to lighten it enough to see pen marks.

Next is the painting which I love, the repetitiveness of all those line was something I enjoyed, weird I know but I love having a pattern to work with.

So it’s as easy as that, three hours of painting. Now it’s ready for delivery.
