when you just can't find what you want

I wanted a large front doormat, but these are sometimes hard to find, unless you want industrial style, or are will to shell out over $100 for something more fashionable.  I new I wanted durability, so I couldn't cheat it with an area rug.  I bought 4 door mats from Ikea and tapes them together from the underside.  it took a lot of hunting through stacks of $7 mats to find 4 approximately the same size.

I taped of a boarder with duct tape and protected the middle with taped down garbage bags and spray painted on the boarder.  The boarder also helped to mask that it was originally separate mats.  I like the end result, resilient, simple with a twist of colour....Just want I wanted.
