Garden Stenciled Bathroom Mat

Use what you have and make it better is always
a good idea, especially if you're thrifty like me.

My girls' bathroom is just that... their bathroom. 

They are almost adults and keeping it clean is their job. 

You can read all about how that goes here.

Over the holidays I had an inexpensive door mat by the sink that worked well. 

It didn't slip and was easy to clean but with Spring right around the corner, the Christmas mat wasn't working anymore. 

I decided to paint it. 

I liked the inexpensive washable mat but needed a new look for Spring. 

I am also redoing the entire bathroom in the near future so this is my inspiration piece.

A DIY repurposed garden stenciled bathroom mat

I used a sample size of regular house paint in a light grey and a small roller

I let the paint dry over night.

The next morning I used one of my favorite garden stencils from Old Sign Stencils to add the image. 

I used a small foam pouncer and craft paint

When I lifted the stencil there was a little bit of paint bleed under the stencil due to the texture of the mat. 

I used the light grey and a small brush to fix the edges with no problem.

I sealed the mat with a matte spray sealer

The whole process was simple and took no time at all.

A beautiful new Spring mat that cost me nothing for the bathroom. 

It washes clean and doesn't slide around the room like a cotton mat.

Now that the mat is the best part of this bathroom I'm going to have to think about updating the rest of the bathroom!
