This project is super easy! First, I sanded my board (a 1×8 cut down to 6 feet long).

Then I gave it a nice coat of black chalky finish paint from DecoArt.

Let it dry.

Then I applied my vinyl lettering. I used a yardstick & a pencil to make sure my lines were in the right spot! I got my growth chart vinyl from Robyn at Create It. Go. She used to run an Etsy shop. Etsy is a great place to look for vinyl lettering by the way. If you own a Silhouette or Cricut you could cut your own vinyl. Where the Smiles Have Been has a cute growth chart cut file over on her blog. You can snag that right {HERE}.

Be patient with this part. It takes a little while to get all your lines just right. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Iโ€™ve shared this stenciling technique before, & I still swear by it! It works amazing every.single.time. After all your vinyl is in placeโ€ฆ.break out some Decoupage or Mod Podge in matte & a foam brush.

Put a generous layer right over your vinyl, & then let it dry.

Next, I gave my board 2 good coats of chalky finish paint. Then I let it dry.
