stained wooden boards with a dark stain - placed doormat on top - then sprayed over all with 4 light coats of creamy colored paint. When you remove it the stained wood that was covered by the mat leaves a beautiful design.
Rubber Door Mat Wall Art wanted a vintage iron piece for the wall but could not find an inexpensive one. Our dollar store had some outdoor black rubber door mats. I purchased a few then spray painted them with Heirloom White from Home Depot.- Very clever!
