Chalkboard Ruler and Glass Wall Art
The big ruler is a great way to engage your kids as they grow taller without having to mark up your walls. Instead of worrying about where to buy one just like it, just grab a slab of wood from a lumber yard and paint it with chalkboard paint. Home Depot has a six-pack of Rust-Oleum chalkboard black spray paint for $24.
The glass wall art with the peek-a-boo Mickey silhouettes are as simple as printing out Mickey faces, trimming them to size, and then positioning them in a blank picture frame to look as though they’re peeking through. Leave the back off the frame to create that windowed look or just paint the backing the same color as the wall to give it the same effect.
