Another growth chart done, this one was a little simpler. Started with a pine board and once the numbers were carved down and the writing was carved I stained it with tea and hit it with vinegar and steel wool to age it. It turned a nasty grey that I didn’t like much so I sanded it back so it was a mix of grey and fresh pine, then hit it with a walnut stain , just the look I was looking for. Used white paint for the numbers and background.

Nice! However, mine would be more for width than height. I was in a home once where the door facing had the children’s heights recorded for a number of years.

Have your say...
