Love it! Easy to follow instructions and great pictures! Of course I had to make my own and make it a little bit different. Here is what you need:
A 6 foot 10"x1" or 8"x1" board (I used a 10"x1")
Printed off large numbers in different fonts. (I made them the size of a printable piece of paper in Word.)
Printed off smaller numbers for the ruler part.
Start with sanding down the board and the sides:
I used a water based clear satin sealer. I like to use water based whenever I can so that cleanup is much easier. Once that is dry, you can start on the measurements:
Remember where you need to start at the bottom of the board based on where you want to place it on the wall. Mine was going to be exactly 7 inches off of the floor, so I was able to start measurements one inch up and then mark every inch with the first foot marker being 5 inches up. I overlapped my markings every time I moved the ruler to keep everything precise:
You can buy the paint markers at most craft stores and sometimes Walmart carries them in their craft section. I use them all the time in my murals- a great way to get a nice crisp and steady line!
