So what would possess me to repurpose a placemat into a bathroom rug? The answer is…
I have no shame.
No really, the answer is I needed the perfect rug for this space and I could not find it. We finished our Guest Friendly Boys’ Bathroom Makeover months ago but I could not find a rug that would fit the space. It was either too big and looked silly paired with our small vanity or it was too plump and the door wouldn’t close over it. So the day I saw these braided jute placemats at TJ Maxx for 2.99 I knew my problem was solved!
- Placemat (I found mine at TJ Maxx for 2.99)
- Rug Tape (I used Great Tape found at Lowe’s for under $10)
It grips immediately but can be repositioned and doesn’t loose its tack.
Plus, the boys have been in and out of there all day and it hasn’t even budged! Not even after our bedtime routine.
I know it’s a little strange to put something intended for your dining table on your bathroom floor but I could not be more excited about how it turned out. It was such a cheap project I went ahead and bought another placemat to have on standby.
Would you try this unusual custom project in your home?
