Spray Painted Door Mats Revisited

Spray Painted Door Mat

It’s time to start thinking about sprucing up your porch and brightening it up a bit for Spring. I made 2 mats last year out of an old black mat and a new $4 coir mat. Since they are both a little boring my first thought was to add some color by spray painting them.

I used the black scrolly one as a stencil for the other one. The paint color is Blue Hyacinth by Krylon. After 3 light coats I took the top mat off to reveal the bottom one.

I love all the detail and the great texture. This one is for the front door.

And this one is for the back door. I love my spray painted door mat, both of them!

    Love it. Two ‘new’ mats with one DIY project. Great color too.

    LOVE this! Can you share where you bought the two mats?

    Looks fantastic Leanne! I’m loving this wonderful weather we’re having so I can start sprucing my outside spaced. Thanks for the great idea-pinned 🙂

    What a fabulous idea! You get 2 mats out of the project. Love it!

    The woven mat is from IKEA and the scroll mat is from Target. I’ve had them both for a few years.
