Paint a Growth Chart…

Happy Tuesday…I would like to say that things have been pretty normal, but that is not the case.  I have been running around entertaining relatives for the last couple days, and even though I have loved every second of it, I am tired.  I did manage to squeeze in a project however…a growth chart I have been wanting to do for months now.  Here is the before and after…

Here are the steps I did to make this growth chart…

I had my husband cut the wood to the exact measurement that I wanted.  I am hanging the chart a foot from the ground and starting at 2 feet and ended with 5 feet and some room above.

I took three equal pieces and drilled them to the backs of the wood…make sure the screws do not go to the front…

I traced an image of a tree using white chalk…

I then painted the tree on using a cream color crafters paint.
