Make your own rustic wall ruler

Saved to Idea Box. Organize
Need to add a little rustic to your home full of crayons and stuffed animals? Throw away those paper wall rulers and make your own! I found this great old barn door at the landfill and screamed with delight when I laid eyes on it. I took just one of the pieces of wood, sanded it down, used permanent marker to make all the lines and numbers, sealed it with a wax, and hung that bad boy on the wall. We mark the kid's height right on it. I love functional and beautiful decor. :)

      @Frances Adler Atkins as I mentioned above...once you have cut and made the correct measures on your new board..just place it next to the lines on your wall and mark on your new board ruler. You can find DIY instructions on line, Google, Pinterest,
