Yep, we are those kind of girls, we get our hands dirty, we grill, and we use power tools. I have had it in mind for quite some time to make a growth chart of some type that is more than a door or piece for trim that is part of our house. We are not positive that this is our “forever” house and so I wanted to make a growth chart that was almost like a piece of art to hang on the wall that we could easily take with us if/when we move.
What better project than this for my 6 year old to help me with, we used a square and power saw to cut the board to the proper length…6 feet. Then I showed her briefly how to use the power wander and she went right to work, and did a great job.
Now we are deciding on a color/pattern/look that we like. Below are some ideas that I like, I will post ours when we finish it!
This one is from growingupvintage on Etsy
There are always cute one from Pottery Barn kids…..but I am sure I can beat the price with my DIY skills.
