I needed (wanted) a new door mat, but our entry way is carpeted so it needed to be really thin for when you open the door. I found this outdoor mat on sale at Target. I made a stencil from some poster board and just got craft paint to paint it with from Hobby Lobby. I used some cheap foam brushes to paint it with. Total cost was about $9. You can use interior paint. I think it would be more durable, but I didn't want to spend the money.
