DIY: Pottery Barn Inspired Monogrammed Doormat Tutorial
I was working on cleaning out my garage today,
when I discovered this old door mat.
Back in the day, this mat was a very colorful summer welcome mat.
Those days are long gone.
Or so I thought.
I flipped this baby over and trimmed off the tails
I have been wanting this classy doormat from
Pottery Barn for a long time.
But at a price tag of $59.00 plus shipping,
I just couldn’t justify it.
I checked around the garage and I had the two supplies I needed:
-black spray paint
Awesome! Let’s do this!
I took my tape…
and made a border on the outer edge of the mat.
I then measured two inches in and placed another inside border.
Next step was to get my “T”.
I printed my letter out on card stock.
I then, very carefully cut my letter out.
I placed the letter in the center of my mat,
leaving 8½ inches on each side.
I finished up by grabbing my tape and filled the middle in.
Final step was spray painting. My favorite part!
I let it dry in the sun for about an hour.
And now I have a welcoming mat that
actually looks welcoming! 🙂
The part I like best,
the whole project cost me $0 bucks!
How beautiful is that?!
Now I must return to cleaning my garage.
I will try to stay on task, but no promises!
Sometimes I Link To:
these are totally cute. I would love if you linked the door mat up to Show Off Monday @ Kampenlane.com on Monday.
