Materials: TRAMPA door mat, contact paper, spray paint

Description: After a winter of salt and snow, my hardwood floors had taken a beating. So, once I got them scrubbed down, I vowed to keep them in better shape with a door mat at every entrance. So I did what most DIYers would do – went to IKEA. I snagged a basic, large coir mat for $8.00, and picked up a can of spray paint on the way back. Add an hour of work, and you’ve got a custom, mod mat that you whipped up yourself.
