DIY: Wooden multi-coloured mat

Make a wooden mat

Looking for a doormat that makes an entrance? Or a bathroom mat that doesn’t end up a soaking mess? Create your own colourful wooden version.

You will need

Step 1
Step one
Taking the timber slats, drill a hole on the side, one close to the top and the other close to the bottom. This is where you’ll be threading through the rope.
Step 2
Step two
Using the Resene testpots, paint each slat a different colour.
Step 3
Step three
Once dry, apply Resene Aquaclear onto each slat to protect them from any water damage.
Step 4
Step four
Thread the rope through the holes of the timber slats, knotting as you go. We arranged the slats tonally from light to dark.
Step 3
Step Five
It’s ready to use in your bathroom or outside your front door.
