So Casey and I have been talking about painting our nasty doormat forever but we never figured out exactly how we wanted to do it. Yesterday I decided I was just going to go for it. Our doormat couldn't have looked worse than it already did. We had seen a doormat that said "Nice Underpants" and well, that is exactly something our doormat would say. So here is how I did it....
Start with your old doormat or a new one. (Fix up your old one and save money or buy a new one that is already the color you want!)
I spray painted the first coat with black spray paint. It took a while to cover the whole mat. We didn't really want our mat to be black but it's the only color that would cover up all the designs.
Then I put another coat of spray paint on the mat to make the color more consistent.
Using acrylic paint and a sponge brush I outlined the word "NICE" first in the top center area of the mat.
Then I put another coat of the paint to make the letters thicker and darker.
One more super super thick coat of paint to make these letters as solid as possible on this mat.
Then I wrote the "UNDERPANTS" word with a different color of paint and a sponge brush. I tried to center them as best as possible.
Another coat to make the letters a little thicker.
And another coat to really thicken the letters and make them as solid as possible.
Let it dry and then it is ready to use! We think it's pretty stinkin' cute compared to what it used to look like.
