The mat had big hunks missing though, so something had to be done.
My Darling Husband spray painted the back side of the mat in navy, which really made the blues in the photo stand out. Then I put it all together as you see below. I think it turned out really well, and was certainly worth all the money I put in to it! Ha! Can't wait to see how they like it.
I'm joining a lot of other folks who are dropping over to "Bloggeritaville" and having another look at all the Thrifty Thursday participants. Please come along!
