An old doormat and some acrylic paint — Can you say upcycle?

This exterior door mat was faded and completely worn out. I just hate to throw things away . . . feels so wasteful. (I already have enough discarded junk in landfills for which I am accountable ?‍♀️).

I selected two colors, a paintbrush, and started painting.

It sort of reminded me of a paint by number kit I did as a kid. Below is a picture after I painted the white flowers.


The picture below is before we updated our decking boards and updated our railing.

So before you throw away your worn-out doormat, consider bringing it back to life with acrylic paint . . . and it’s a whole lot of fun!

If and when this fades, I might try different colors. A real simple DIY with a great result.
