About

Downright Creative

Hello! It's a pleasure meeting you! My name is Charley, and I'm a work from home mamma to a beautiful baby boy. My better half, JR, also helps me out with the shop from time to time. He primarily keeps my machinery in tip top shape and will help out if I'm super busy.

I started Downright Creative out of necessity back in 2013. I'd owned my home for 3 years, and in that time I had painted all of the walls 3 times, given my kitchen a facelift THEN full remodel, and had re-purposed or made all of my wooden furniture. My bank account was empty and my project list was compete!

My friends were always asking to buy my decor and since I was faced with the option of getting a second job or making my friends decor; the decision was simple and my little business was born! I started out setting up at our local Farmers Market every Saturday morning where I met some awesome folks who suggested I sell on Etsy. I've loved creating decor for you and have always wished I could do it full time, but needed the income of my 9-5 job.

Fast forward to 2017- we welcomed a little baby boy into the world! After reviewing our lives, we decided that I would stay home with our babe and work on Downright Creative full time (as full time as you can be with a newborn! heh!)

I'm blessed beyond measure that I have this opportunity and more so- that you, my fantastic customers continue to support my dreams!

Frequently asked questions
Growth Charts- What does w/ pen mean?

The pen option includes a Sharpie brand oil based paint pen, fine tip. These are better than a standard permanent marker because they don't have a metallic red cast to them in certain lights. That said, any oil based paint pen or permanent marker definitely works too!

Walnut, Weathered Wood, and Weathered White GIANT Rulers will be sent a black paint pen.
Rustic Black will be sent a white paint pen.

What's with the long lead time on Growth Charts?

Our current lead time is the first line of every item's description.

Our growth charts go through a lengthy process to transform from the raw piece of lumber to the growth chart your family will cherish. Our hands are involved in every step of the process, so we do require a little time to complete your order. We think you'll agree- they're worth the wait!!

At this time, we are unable to offer a Rush option.
