I have had this growth chart sitting in my closet for so long. I didn't want to put it on the wall, because I like to change wall colors too much and didn't want to lose that information. I suppose I was waiting to pick out the right piece of wood at the home improvement store. Then it hit me. I can repurpose an old door!
Not just any door, but a section of a bi-fold door that used to live between my front door and my kitchen. We took this door out right as we moved in and it's been sitting in our garage ever since.
I had Kevin take apart the door so I was left with one section.
Lucky for me the other side had no details
I lightly sanded it down,
gave it two coats of black pant and put my vinyl on
And this is it's new home
(see that space to the right of the chart and across from the stairs? That's where the door used to live)I am having my sister, who owns a vinyl machine , continue the measurements up to 7 feet. She called me yesterday for all the details and I can't wait to see it finished.
I am using a white marker I found at Robert's to write down the measurements.
The kids love walking by and seeing how tall they are.
I've had to remind them more than a few times that they probably haven't grown much in a day. I am so excited to see this fill up!
