DIY Painted Doormat Project

by Erika Woelfel

Let’s face it, we all want to add a little curb appeal to our homes but there can be a variety of reasons that we can’t tackle a full-scale exterior paint project. Whether you rent or just don’t have the time or budget for the project, sometimes you’ve got to get a little creative to add some personal flair to your home. And even though we can’t all paint our houses, a custom doormat is a quick and easy way to personalize your entryway.

What You’ll Need:

3 Saturate foam roller brush with paint and roll and press firmly onto jute doormat. Repeat until complete.

4 Remove painter’s tape carefully. Let paint dry fully.

5 Place doormat in front of door and enjoy!


Your entryway says a lot about you. Every time a guest visits, your house greets them before you get the chance. With a hand-painted doormat, you can make sure your guests receive the kind of warm welcome you’d like them to.


Colorfully Yours,
