Rubber Door Mat Wall Decor in 30 Minutes

3 Materials
30 Minutes

Hey Y'all!!! I'm am so excited about this project!If you're looking for a statement piece for your home decor but don't want to dig deep in your pockets, this is totally the project for you! Who would have thought a door mat could become such a wall beauty?!

Wait 'til you see what this door mat becomes!!!

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.

    How about those 3M Command Stripes to secure the areas that need it?

      This would be awesome with stair runners in the right space or flanking a piece of art or a clock. !!

    Didn't you forget the step about protecting the rest of the wall from the paint or am I missing something?

      I didn't see it directly addressed in the post but if you are worried about paint transfer into the hanging wall, I am sure a backer could be added for protection and an added pop of color. :)

    What was used to hang mat and what size?

      Look at the video - looks like small nails were hammered into the wall. I might use command hooks or even decorative nails. Google it.

    Definitely a very unique piece of art for the wall. Gives the room a bit of architectural flare. I really like it.
