DIY Metal Tabbed Height Chart
You've all seen the fabulous ruler height chart from Pottery Barn, right? You know the one everybody and their mother has ripped off to make their own.

tactile quality. I love when you can feel the letters on a gravestone or feel the carvings in the doorframe on classic height charts. The only problem is that those door frames cannot easily come with you to the next house. I wanted that tactile quality for my height chart, and the punched letters and metal pieces do the job, but the piece is removable so it can come us if we ever move.
For the board, I took a scrap piece of wood in the garage, some leftover redwood stain and that was that. Easy enough, right?
I attached the tags to our current heights and each year I plan to either add new tags or perhaps burn lines into the wood to show the height progression.
