Brielle has been growing like a weed and I can tell you this since we track her growth on the hot air balloon growth chart hung in her nursery. I can now say the same about my nephews since I gifted them a DIY Portable Growth Chart of their very own this Christmas! I offered to paint them a design of their choice if my brother-in-law would prep the board. He painted the board a green base (from something they already had in the home) and my oldest nephew, Blake, chose “Construction Trucks.”

I was lucky enough to partner with Deco Art on this project to use my favorite Americana acrylic paints. I just love how well they cover and how fast they dry. I did have to paint a second coat with some of the colors, but I really think this was due to the glossy base coat my brother-in-law applied and not a fault of the Americana paint. I know this from my past experience with this paint when doing Allie’s Alphabet Blocks!
After a few nights where I’d find 30 minutes here or there, the growth chart was complete! The best part was gifting it at Christmas. My sister, who was 7 months pregnant with her third, had not yet revealed the baby name to family or friends. She told me the name so that I could paint it on the chart and she could open it at Christmas.
I can’t wait to see it hung up!
And to meet little Jared in March!
