DIY Height Chart

I can’t believe how fast the kids are growing up.  Bittersweet.  We’ve been tracking their growth with a Sharpie on our office door trim:
I didn’t want to lose those priceless markings but since I painted the bookshelf I needed to repaint the rest of the trim in the room (“needed to” is relative I understand).  I picked up a pre-cut 1” x 5” x 6’ board from Home Depot and then sanded, conditioned, stained and poly’ed it.  Then I printed out the numbers on paper, cut them out and traced them on the board.
I went over the tracings with a black Sharpie.
I placed it on the side of the renovated bookshelves because I liked how it picked up the color of the french doors.
