Lots of folks have these, but it's perfect for us as a nomadic never-staying-put family. My mom was measured when she was little by a doorframe, but it stayed with the house after my grandparents passed, so it's nice to have something we can carry around. My favorite thing is the simple, vintage design that we chose. Not a lot of lines, not a lot of fuss. A stain on a piece of wood, and some acrylic paint. Easy peasy.
