Not familiar with a coir doormat? I bought mine at Home Depot for under $10.
I have to tell you, I was a little intimidated to try my hand at painting this mat. I just knew the stencil would bleed something awful, but it didn’t. You’ll have to hop over to The Summery Umbrella to read all about it! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post to read my tips, too!
By the way, this is our German Shepherd Dog Zoey in the photograph. She was a reluctant model, but still adorable, don’t you think? Don’t be fooled by her demeanor though, she is the mighty huntress. She is ever vigilant and always on duty. She can be quite the sweety, too; unless, of course, you happen to be our mail carrier. We have the world’s nicest young man for a mail carrier and Zoey absolutely does not like him. But, that’s a story for another day.
So, what design will you use for your custom coir doormat? If you do make one, I’d love to hear about it or see pictures. Feel free to leave a comment below or share on Facebook via A Handmade Home’s Group Page.
