Hey, friends! I have an easy tutorial to share with you all today. The last time I was walking through Dollar Tree, I came across a bunch of door mats. They had different colors: green, black and gray, I believe. I picked up one in green, and figured for $1, I’d find something to do with this to spruce it up a bit!
And I sure did manage to bring it to life! I love my new DIY Door Mat. It was such an easy project, and really adds a little fun to our back patio!
DIY Painted Door Mat
So, here is what the door mat looked like when I brought it home!
Here is what I used to spruce it up!
white spray paint (suitable for outdoor use)
First, I laid down the tape in the pattern I wanted. I created a series of diagonal stripes (of varying widths.) And then I also used the tape to write out the word “HOME” diagonally.
I spray painted this a few times. As always, it is best to use spray paint in multiple lighter coats. The painter’s tape started to peel up as the paint dried a bit, but as you’ll see in the next picture, it didn’t really affect the final product.
Once dried, I removed the tape. I’m happy with those sharp lines. Gotta love painter’s tape!
How much fun is this? I’m loving my new door mat!
I placed it on the back patio, and placed some of my brightest, colorful plants beside it.
Yep, I’m smiling from ear to ear when I use that door now!
