So, a couple of weeks ago I came across this awesome DIY Growth chart idea on Pinterest from Plan It DIY and immediately fell in love!
I have always loved seeing the "growth charts" in the doorjamb at older people's houses with all of the markings from their kids through the years. And, of course, I wanted to keep track of my own babies, but since we rent I just never have (since it would just get painted over one day, anyway :/). Until now, that is!
When I saw this picture, I instantly knew I just had to make one! It is so cute, and I love that we can just take it down and bring it with us when we (eventually) move.
Well, last week I came across a bunch of free, old doors in our neighborhood! (Score!!!) And knew exactly what I would do with one of them! (Y'all can be expecting quite a few door projects because I have a ton of them and as you can see in this post, there are just so many cool things that can be done!)
Anyway, here is our growth chart!
I simply painted it black, used a tape measure to note all of the inch marks, painted them and the numbers with stencils, added a doorknob, and voila I was done! (Still need to add a protective coat and hang it up! ;)) So cute, right? And the boys are really excited to see how tall they are! ;)
