An Easy Rug Update

It sure is a good thing that IKEA is not handy.

I took a trip with my dear friend Sherry to IKEA and for some outlet shopping a few weekends ago. We found a lot of good deals but it sure was hard to stay within budget. Oops! {Sorry honey!}

One of my deals was this $5.00 doormat from IKEA. Its kind of sisal-ly {if that's a word}. I figured at this price it wouldn't hurt to give it a try and see what I could do with it.



Here's where it started:



First I taped off my stripes using blue painters tape. 


Then out to the garage we went with some leftover spray paint in various colors.



I used newspaper to cover the mat on either side of my stripe so that the color wouldn't spray where it wasn't wanted.

Once I was done I used a clear gloss sealer {gloss was all I had on hand, but the final product doesn't look glossy}. 

And that's it! 





Thanks for stopping by!
