Happy Weekend: Colourful Door Mat DIY

I'm all for increasing curb appeal but in a rented place I'm unable to paint my front door or upgrade my facade, but what I can do is add some temporary pizazz! How you ask? Well, in the from of a DIY wooden door mat painted in multicoloured hues. A fun way to give visitors a hint of what to expect inside your home; tone town the shades if you like a pastel look or up the heat with hot hues for a brighter finish. You can sand down an existing wooden door mat and then prime, paint and seal it, or you can make the whole thing from scratch. Either way, the result is so perfectly Bright.Bazaar that I just love it! What are your weekend plans, folks? 


  1. This is brilliant!
    I can never find a dorrmat I really like.
    We're actually in the middle of painting the exterior of our house.
    It is going to echo all the colors we've used inside the house.
    But we're having a hard time narrowing down the colors we want to use.
    Maybe this could help us finalize our color palette.
    Thanks for sharing such a great idea.
    Love from,
