So I found this idea on Pinterest which was apparently taken from a discontinued Pottery Barn Kids item. I made this life sized ruler to measure my kids on. We had a height measurement wall in our house growing up and my kids are getting to that point when I'd like to do this. But as a military family we are pretty much nomadic so I wanted something we can take with us. This completely fits the bill. And, although the stain turned out a bit darker than I anticipated, I'm really happy with my larger than life ruler.
Sam put the big hole in the top of it, which I thought was pretty clever since every ruler has one! I think we are going to try and make the hanging mechanism look like a giant nail head too. I can't wait to get my little monkeys measured on here.
Sam and I met while using the public computers at the apartment complex we both lived at. We were married in August of 2005 and in the almost six years since, have been blessed with the arrival of three little boys: Connor, Bear and Keith.
