I primed it, then I put a shade of white, or grey as it looked. Then I was going to stencil on it. After all that I just did not really like it. I did not like how you could see each tile, I didn't like how you could see where I had to cut it off. Maybe if I would of used a darker color to begin with, and actually bought a square mat.:)
So anyway I took some fabric that I had downstairs and cut to fit then I hot glued it on. I figure I still get the cushion of the mat, and now when the fabric needs a cleaning I can just pull it off and wash it. Once it is washed I can just hot glue it back on, or find different fabric I like more right?
I like how it turned out. I like how how bright it is, so it doesn't look too boring with out the extras that you might find on a rug that you buy. So I hope you are having a great one! Until next time....Kim
