OMG - I love this project! I did doors on a cabinet - beyond awesome! On this photo from lemontreecreation...: she stained wooden boards with a dark stain - placed doormat on top - then sprayed over all with 4 light coats of creamy colored paint - letting dry between coats. Make sure you get the paint into all the openings. Do not move mat until it is completely dry or it will smear. When you remove it the stained wood that was covered by the mat leaves a beautiful design. You can use any color - on all kinds of surfaces I did some cabinet doors but the possibilities are many. The original project was used for wall art over a sofa.
