My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.


A Door Mat

I have been thinking about redoing my plain boring door mat for quite some time but I couldn't figure out what sort of pattern I wanted.  This project took about 15 minutes to make - super easy but I put a lot of thought into it because once you commit there is no looking back and I have a tendency to over think things :). I didn't want something cutesy- I love cute but I just didn't want something with kittens or hearts or puppies or swirls.. at least not for a door mat.
Door Mat- I have this one.
Painters Tape- .94 inch blue painters tape
Spray Paint- Gray or whatever color you choose.

All you do is tape up the door mat and then spray paint.  The project was done before I knew it and even Tim said he liked how it turned out, which is a lot for him.  He doesn't notice things very often or he will point something out months later and ask me if I did something different.  See Yoda in the photo? such a ham- that pug.

This is brilliant Erika! Despite it's simplicity it actually takes a massive amount of creative talent and effort to even think of this idea and I think it's just incredible Erika, really good job here!

Awesome! It looks great and sounds like it was a super easy project. I love easy, simple and fast projects that look like a million bucks.

there is nothing i love better than an easy diy that looks amazing. this one is so great! i have thought about doing this with a straw like door mat, but wasn't sure it would stick to that, this one looks like it would work way better. ps i have those same curtains ;)
