Today I am sharing with you my DIY Chevron Doormat!
I wanted to add a little color to my front porch area and I wanted to make
it something festive but also something that would last all summer.
In my opinion, you can never go wrong with red, white and blue!
I had been wanting to attempt my own DIY rug/doormat for quite sometime and
this seemed like as good a time as any! For this, all you need is your rug, some
masking tape and spray paint. The plain rug was surprisingly hard to find.
I ended up finding this natural fiber one at Home Depot for just under $8.
pieces of tape to make my pattern:
And then taped to the rug in my desired pattern:
Then I got busy painting:
And here she is! I have to say, I'm quite pleased with her!
There are a few areas of overspray of paint on the portion that was taped.
If and when I attempt this project again I will try to be more precise with the angle
that I am spraying to help with that. Then again, it could just be that the tape
didn't want to adhere to the rug at all. Overall, I'm still very happy
with my custom rug for under $10!
To add a little more color and add a festive touch, I simply wrapped a foam
wreath with fabric strips and added some DIY felt flowers.
(There are tons of tutorials online on how to make these felt flowers...so easy!!!)
To finish, I added a tropical looking plant and a bright red pot of flowers.
My mom got me the "Welcome" star as a gift. (I think from Michael's?)
It goes perfectly with my "Stars and Stripes" theme!
What about you guys? How are you adding "summer" to your decor?
Have you attempted a painted DIY rug? I'm itching to try another
one, possibly for something inside! Hmmm...???
