If your old outdoor Welcome Mat is faded and you are about to throw away, stop right there and grab some paints to give it a face-lift. You won’t believe the transformations you can create with some colorful paints. Painting something old always seems to make it look brand new. If you can’t buy a new door mat, upcycle it and give it new life!
For this project you will need some acrylic paints, paint brushes, and a clear spray sealer or polyacrylic clear sealer to put over the paint once it’s dry. You can use matte or glossy paint depending on the finish you are going for.
Here are some examples of outdoor welcome doormats that have been painted to give them new life to get you inspired to paint yours. Looking at the “before” and then “after” images makes you realize just how much a good coat of paint will do wonders for an old doormat.
