Easy Restyled Door Mat

Hey guys, Happy May 1st! Can you believe it's May already? Today I wanted to show this project I did and am sharing on the Hazel and Ruby blog today.

I made this wooden door mat last year (following this fabulous tutorial by Lowe's) and I actually used tie-dye to "stain" the wood hot pink. It turned out really awesome, but after a year the sun has faded the hot pink to a light pink and I decided it needed a new look.

I started by spray painting a few of the wooden slats with some of Krylon's metallic paint.
I only spray painted the slats that I planned on masking.

I used the Cut your own Stencil Masks material and my Brother Scan N Cut to cut out the vine mask (see my tips for cutting the mask material here). I love being able to design my own masks!

I placed my custom stencil masks over the slats that I had spray painted gold and then spray painted over all of the wooden slats with a nice green paint, also by Krylon.

I also love Krylon's "Glitter Blast" paint, so I blasted my mat with a bit of glitter to bling it up.

I felt it was still a bit plain, so I grabbed a few of the DIY Decor Tape rolls and a Fat Washi roll and covered up a few of the slats. Such an easy way to add a bit of pattern!

I'm super thrilled with how it turned out.

I did go over the DIY Decor Tape with a bit of Mod Podge simply because this mat is out in the weather and getting stepped on every day. The DIY Decor Tape holes up beautifully inside, but I figured a little extra protection couldn't hurt for outdoor, right?

Have you ever restyled a finished project?

    1. Aw, thanks Heather! I have no problems "remaking" things I've made. ;)
