How to Make a Chalkboard Baby Bump Tracker That Grows with You!

Ever since my first pregnancy, I’ve enjoyed watching other mother’s progress and seeing the different ways moms-to-be display the growth of their baby bump! Drawn to the chalkboard displays, I chalk-spray painted a full-length mirror for my first baby bump, I used a chalkboard charger with a {bracket} detail for my second baby bump and now I’m back to a chalk-painted DIY for my third baby bump! Hope you enjoy this Chalkboard Baby Bump Tracker!

Today I want to show you a simple DIY Chalkboard Baby Bump Tracker in thirty minutes to an hour (after sourcing for your materials)!
