Growth Chart from Angie @ The Cellar Door Stories
when we got the living room painted and the floors done, I had them paint over the door frame that I had the boys' measurements on but not before I transfered it onto a long piece of paper. I've been waiting for a good idea for a growth chart to come along so that I could transfer those measurements onto it and take with us to another house. Here it is! I can't wait to make it!
I like this color green, maybe a little lighter.
- Paint my front porch concrete (I'll probably use a paint I already have).
- Move my teak chairs to the front porch with a little table between them.
- Add some plants - I'll probably dig up some stuff from the backyard to put there, like my autumn sage and birds of paradise. I might steal some of my neighbor's rosemary, too.
- Make some flower boxes out of my reclaimed wood that I took from someone's curb.
- Paint my shutters green.
I have been totally obsessed with my desire to build things out of reclaimed fence wood. I don't even remember when it all started, but I'm pretty crazy about it. My first project is a step stool for the boys' bathroom. I'm currently covered with sawdust from starting that project this morning. It goes slowly when you have to monitor little boys in the kiddie pool and feed a baby that won't take a long enough nap.
- Make inboxes out of my reclaimed wood and put little chalkboard tags on them with our names on them.
- Paint the inside of my cabinet with chalkboard paint.
- Make skinny picture shelves out of....wait for it....my reclaimed wood.
- Start a potted herb garden.
- Tear down the half-walls of my back porch and paint the concrete.
- Make a coat hook wall rack out of....um...yeah. I have a ton of it, y'all.
