I love all things monogrammed. Like my little towel on my bathroom counter. It has such a classy look. This quick easy monogram doormat is the result of a thought I had when I saw the plain mat at Ikea. I had just seen how easy it is to spray paint these using a stencil and had the idea to make my own.

Look these up on online. You will find they are anywhere from $25 to $75! Crazy! I was able to make such a beautiful custom design for around $20! Not to mention customized to the color I like – the gold gives a softer look than the standard black.

To make this quick easy monogram doormat you will need:

I drew my “G” onto a piece of poster board. I used a pencil so I could sketch my letter and create my final lines. Once I was happy with my monogram, I carefully cut it out using a sharp knife.

Next, I took my stencil and sprayed the back with glue. I wanted it to adhere slightly, so when I started to spray paint the mat, the poster board would stay put. Here I used a gold metallic spray paint by Rust-oleum. I was hoping to create the perfect fall doormat now summer is slowly coming to an end.

Once this finished drying, I started to apply the painter’s tape to create my border.  I cut the inner strip of tape with my knife to ensure a straight edge. Finally, I sprayed the trim with the spray paint. After I allowed it to completely dry, I removed the tape to a beautiful finished product.
