Make It Monday: Monogram doormat

I finally made the doormat that was on my to-do list.  I started with this $6.88 mat from Walmart
 I started taping a border down
I overlapped the tape and decided to cut out the overlapping piece instead of trying to make 2 straight rectangles.
I printed out a "P" from the computer. (Do you think I am jinxing it...because I'm not a "P" Yet???..I am still Ms."M".... but the wedding will be soon...a little over a month..hahah)
 I cut it out and traced it on contact paper
Then I cut that out, along with some circles and stuck them on the mat.
The contact paper didn't stick the there is some black that sprayed under the letter.
But I lovelovelove it! I placed it outside.
Here are some more shots of the deck
My Aunt and Uncle gave us this cool box
 I also painted table and chairs this is the before
and here it is now..looks so much better! 
I got this set at Ikea for $50 a couple of years ago.

What do you think of my $6.88 monogram mat? 

I am linking up to the following parties


  1. I love it! And so easy to make. Looks great :)


  2. That is a great doormat! Looks like it could be from PB or Ballard! Thanks for sharing!

  3. This is such a great idea (and simple, which I love)! I popped in via the Power of Paint Party. Glad I did -- I'm a new follower. :-)

  4. That is so nice! Unfortunately I already bought 2 different kind of doormats a few weeks ago :( But well.... maybe I still can do something with them like you did. Thanks for sharing this idea!
