Wall Timeline up and ready to fill

I finished up the wall timeline frame today and it is ready to fill with dates!!!

The wood frame is some upcycled down trim I picked up at our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore for $.25 a foot.  I spray painted the trim with Brown Leather Glossy Krylon paint from Wal-Mart cositn $2.67. I bought more trim than I needed (at that price it was better to be safe than sorry..).  The paper is from a huge roll of cream colored paper a neighbor gave my mom about 25 years ago (no kidding)...

Now we have a 6foot x 4 foot (44 inches to be exact) framed timeline in our hallway.  I am going to day our base line and put some key century marks on it so it is ready to be filled in.  I am going to use clipart tags for some of the key events we have learned.. We will be starting with Creation and bringing to present day (I figure through 2020 should give us plenty of timeline to work with...)

Next week the boys will have tags to hang on the timeline in their workboxes (I am thinking of using tags and string to fill the space and be able to include more events..)
