I downloaded a ruler from Silhouette studio but in the end I just cut some numbers using the font Hoedown instead. The other way was becoming too difficult since I needed to stretch it to 5 or 6 feet for my preference. In the end, I did use the dash marks when I wanted to make sure the lines looked clean.
I have been using the Bistro markers and they work fine on the wall and they don't leave the dust like chalk does so I may just keep with that system. Therefore, I did not prime the wall with chalk.
I also intend to use permanent paint to track growth curves or milestones; that way they can't be erased accidentally.
I also used some of the metallic paint and the arrow stencil that I hope to soon use in my hallway project.
I love the way it turned out and I may continue it around the frame of the door. I kinda goofed and meant to end the paint in a straight line where the door frame ends above the pantry door but I looked up and realized I had passed that mark. I then made a set of stairs in paint to add to the theme of growth, and added Thompson growth keeper. It can be changed later if it doesn't sit well with me after a few days.
I love it and am on my way to trackin' some inches!
What kind of growth charts have you made or have you seen that you drooled over?
