Bean - Hand Painted Ruler Height Chart Review & Upcoming Giveaway

*I was not paid for this post but provided with a discount on a height chart for the purpose of review and my honest opinion. The following is my thoughts and review....

I have been wanting to create for some time now one of the most adorable and highly pinned images on Pinterest - the Ruler Height Chart!

And while I have good intentions and so badly want to make one, day by day, week by week goes by and I just can't seem to find the time. I was so excited to find BEAN, an online shop that just happens to be local to me that creates the most amazing and perfect one of a kind art and wood decor.

BEAN is owned and operated by Nicole a mom of two. With exceptional artistic talent all her artwork and decor is hand painted and hand cut. She makes no effort to hide the original markings of the wood - this just adds to the charm of the piece.

I had the opportunity to review a Ruler Height Chart! Yay! My wall is no longer empty and I can now focus my energy on my boys and how quickly they are growing rather than my list of projects that will never be done.

The details and craftsmanship of BEAN's artwork is impeccable. I couldn't be more happy with how the chart turned out. From the stain to the paint and to the smart saw tooth hanger that comes on each piece, Nicole really makes all of her artwork one of a kind and easy for you to simply hang and enjoy.

My height chart is just plain and looks like a ruler, however you can also have your children's names and even date of birth added as well. I wanted mine to have a plain side so I can add the boys hand prints and maybe a photo or two and really customize it over the years.

Big Brother stands by the chart every single day and asks me if he has grown. I love this addition to our family story and it will be used and treasured for years and years to come.

Here are a few more of my favorite pieces from Bean, although I love everything she does it is very hard to choose!
Right now you can only order BEAN on Facebook but an Etsy shop is in the works! Simply visit BEAN on Facebook - find your favorite artwork (or 2 or 3) and send a PM (Private Message) to get the ball rolling and your artwork on it's way!

Nicole from BEAN has graciously created a special piece (and one of my favorites) just for me to give away in the upcoming For the Home Giveaway Hop that will run from July 8 - 22nd! So head over HERE and enter and GOOD LUCK!
