Pinterest let me down this week.
In my searches for a cheap headboard this week I came across the same idea over and over-rubber “iron like” floor mats spray painted, framed and hung on the wall.
This woman is a genius! Rubber floor mats people! It’s gorgeous! Her instructions were easy to follow so I decided to go for it! Target didn’t have a huge selection of the rubber mats but I was happy with the one I found:
It was going to be a little short width wise but it was only $21.59 so I thought it was worth a try!
It didn’t work. I did three thin coats of spray paint that was supposed to work on rubber. It didn’t.
Not at all.
Not even a little bit.
All was not lost though because the paint is coming off in sheets so I expect it’ll be back to black in no time. It’s (obviously) still functional as a door mat so it’s outside my laundry room door now.
Never fear though-after a round of thrift shopping today I found a better solution! Stay tuned for that!
