In Part 2, I'm going to show you what the mat and pots looked like before and how easy it was to transform them.
This is what greeted you when you stepped up to my front door....
Now isn't that welcoming? Not!
I really don't have many people use the front door, but that is just plain embarrassing.
So, I thought, I could just toss it and buy a new one....
What would happen if I painted it? What did I have to lose?
I tested out a corner.
The mat seemed to soak up the paint. Not bad.
And in case you are wondering, no I didn't clean it.
I set it out in the rain the day before.
And yes, that is bird poop. :/
I just flicked it off and kept on painting.
I found some white exterior paint in the basement and continued painting.
I only did 2 coats.
Then for the blue parts, I used cardboard, some tape and spray painted.
Since I'm talking about spray paint, I used that same blue paint for these UGLY pots.
This is the best spray paint E.V.E.R.!!
No one is paying me to say that!
It adheres to just about anything and the coverage is amazing.
I only did 2 coats on these pots.
And they look awesome!!
I sprayed the mat with a clear satin coat also, maybe it will last longer! We'll see...
I love the fact that I was able to make the mat coordinate.
So, don't throw that old mat out, give it a makeover, paint it!!
