Nothing says Welcome Home like a homemade welcome mat! We've made a lot of painted rugs over the years, but I'm happy to report that this is our easiest and most durable version yet. I found this textured rug at Target and decided to try using porch paint instead of spray paint.
Take those foam, interlocking playmats (they come in red, yellow, blue, and green squares) and paint them whatever design you like. Now you have a great mat that you can stand on for long periods of time! Brilliant idea! This article shows step by step how to paint them.
