Big Ruler

I come from a really tall family. I am 6'0 and I have two brothers who are 6'7.  Growing up we always measured ourselves on the back of my parents bedroom wall.  Did other families do this??
I was searching Pinterest a few weeks back and came across this pin.  A giant ruler for the wall.  Love. Love. Love.  Today was the day to make it happen. 
Took the kids and my mother in law to Home Depot where I bought a primed white MDF board.  I had them cut it to 7 feet. Measurement = 8 inches by 7 feet. 
I painted it with a brown paint (Behr Premium Plus-Deep Base No. 2753)and let it dry.  I then mixed a faux glaze(Behr Premium Plus-Faux Glaze N. 748) with a darker brown paint(Behr Deep Base No. PP103) and brushed it over the board.  I then combed it with a handy dandy Martha Stewart graining tool to give it a wood look. After it dried we spray painted numbers on it (using number stencils)  I truly love it.  Can't wait to measure the kids tomorrow when they wake up! 

If you make this project I would love to see it!  One of my tall brothers made one today for his home!
