STEP 1: Spray mat First, I spray painted my mat using long, quick bursts. I had a handy dandy spray can attachment but unfortunately, after several years, it kicked the bucket and I haven’t gotten a new one yet. Do one even coat on the front and sides of the mat—I didn’t bother with the back since it was going to be hanging on the wall. STEP 2: Let the mat dry completely.

STEP 3: Sand the mat Once my mat was dry, I lightly sanded the top of the mat. You can apply more pressure in some places to give the mat a more worn look.

I. AM. OBSESSED!!! I absolutely love the color blue I chose -- I'm half tempted to re-do my entire living room to flow with this color. I am crazy about this project and how quick and easy it was to create a nice piece of wall decor -- you can hang it vertically or horizontally, whatever your decor need is! Score for DIY! :) *The only thing I feel I need to do to is reinforce how my mat is hanging on my wall...I may add a few little small nails on the right side to help it stay flat.

Materials I used for this project:

  • Rubber mat   (Home Depot or Dollar Store)
  • Rustoleum spray paint (Satin Wildflower blue)   (Home Depot)
  • Fine grit sandpaper   (on hand)

    This is nice. This would work great as a stencil outside.

    What if you were to buy 2, hang on wall and spray paint. Use them as stencils, keep moving them and spray painting the wall. You could try one small feature wall and see how it turns out?
