Doubling Up a Front Door Mat

We have been busy sprucing up the front porch and back stoop.  Included in this mini makeover was a need for a new front door mat.  We have a large covered front porch and a lot of room around the front door.  A standard size mat (18” x 30”) just looked way to small.  After talking it over with my sister, I knew I wanted a decorative rubber mat for three reasons…

1.  durability
2.  neutral and will withstand different seasons
3.  wanted a black mat

I searched high and low for a large rubber mat and came up short.  I finally came across a 18” x 30” mat at Target and loved the pattern (a lot of decorative rubber mats are too ornate for my taste).  Price tag - $12.99.  I decided to buy two and turn them on their side.

We now have one large rubber mat and loving it.  Sometimes you have to think outside the box to get what you want!

We also have a newly painted door and new house numbers!  More to come on this!
