Lately I haven't been doing much Pinteresting. I look daily, maybe pinning something here or there. But, I haven't been that invested in it. Unlike how I used to be. Addicted!
But, a while back I found a project that looked pretty easy and interesting. Yesterday, while we were at Home Depot, I found the items needed in order to do the project. Love when that happens!
You just buy some sort of rubber outdoor mat, spray paint, and sand paper.
I forgot to take a picture of the mat before I painted it, but this is the back side of it. The only difference is that this side is flat, where as the other side is rounded.
I sprayed two coats. I'm not sure it was really needed, just thought it was better coverage.
I hung it on the wall and I really like the results.
I needed something over that chair and this fits perfectly.
It sort of looks like a metal grate. Take a closer look. Mine doesn't look as metally as the one that I pinned. I think I might go at it with the sand paper again.
I'm thinking about buying more and cutting out parts of the mat. The kitchen is painted now and I need some wall decoration for it. I think this might be a good solution.

I sanded it a bit more and it does look better! Take a look.
I guess I was just nervous about sanding too much paint off. I needed to just go for it and do it. I think this looks cool!
