Having left the vinyl giraffe growth chart in our old house, we were in need of a new one. I had eyed a fun oversized ruler style in the PBK catalog well before our move and had it on my future 'to do' list. Thanks to help from my friend, Stacey, who rocked some stencil creations with her Silhouette and shopped for the boards, we now have one!

To hang the ruler, I purchased a pack of keyhole picture hangers. The wood was soft enough that I was easily able to attach the hangers to the back of the board using the included screws without pulling out the drill.

After measuring and placing the screws, Trent helped me get it on the wall. Lining it up with both keyholes at once took some effort - I kept hitting one and missing the other. Then he watched the level at the top while I added heavy duty velcro under the bottom. This assured it was straight (I'm a tad OCD like that) and keeps the ruler secure. I don't want an accidental bump during play to knock it off the wall.
