MY DIY | Welcome Mat
I was looking for a way to greet my guests in true DIY style, so made my own welcome mat to say hello! I love the functionality of the natural coir mat but wanted to give it a little makeover to fit the look of my apartment. Starting with the clean slate, I decided wanted to stick to black (to hide any mud) and add a pop of color! Steps after the break…
What you need:
Natural Coir Mat
Roller brush and tray
Vinyl sticker letters
What to do:
First tape off the edges of your mat, I measured buy doing two pieces from the edge.
Next lay down your vinyl sticker letters to spell out your message
Using the roller paint the uncovered spots
Peal off your letters and the tape around the edges
With a paintbrush add a pop of color
After it dries, place a piece of fabric like a pillow case over the painted sections and iron on medium heat to seal the paint so it does not brush off on your guest’s shoes. Use Rowenta’s Eco Iron and save engergy while DIYing!
