If you're tired of being greeted by the same old sisal rug in front of your door, try this easy DIY to give it a new look and some bold color.

Elsie at A Beautiful Mess wanted her welcome mat to feel more welcoming, so she gave it a crafty makeover. The key here is using porch paint, which is more durable than, say, latex paint or spray paint. It takes a few coats to really cover the rug fibers with an even layer of color, but the results are long-lasting and eye-catching.

Make or buy a stencil for your design, or free-hand a more personal element like a monogram. See how Elsie created hers over on A Beautiful Mess!
