Instructions Print

Step 1
Paint entire frame white. May need two coats. Let dry.
Step 2
Measure 3/8" increments all the way down the frame on both edges so as to line up the ruler evenly.
Step 3
Using the metal cork-backed ruler, draw lines all the way across horizontally using the blue Sharpie® marker. Let dry.
Step 4
Measure about 1" in from the left side and draw two vertical lines, using the red Sharpie® marker, side-by-side but not touching.

TIP: It is important to use a cork backed ruler so that the Sharpie® pen doesn't bleed under the ruler.
