Floor Mat Repair: The Neon Edition


I know what you are thinking. Has it come to this? Are you really duct-taping the floor?

Yes. Why, yes, I am. If Kate Spade can do it so can I. I’m cheap and I’m not in the market to buy a new rug for my dining room floor. The wood strips were starting to pull up from me moving my heavy Ikea dining room table around so much and I’m tired of getting splinters in my feet.  So I’m taping up this old wooden mat thing that my neighbor got out of the trash for me. We’re classy like that here in Apartmentland. Just like Kate Spade.


Neon duct tape is where it’s at.

I don’t know. It’s probably really tacky (ha! I made a joke there) and awful but you know what? I’m a single mom living in an apartment. I’ll just say it’s artistic and let my freak flag fly.

I’m thinking someday when I buy some more groovy duct tape I’ll add more stripes and eventually it will be completely covered. It will be a duct tape mat! Probably the next big thing coming to a Pinterest board near you!

Mark my words, honey! (said in my best granny voice)

    I really like it!! But, I made duct tape pencil cases for my kids – using ziplock baggies. So… I might not be the greatest judge:)

    This post almost dropped me into the rabbit hole that is Pinterest. :D I went looking for duct taped mats and found a cobweb canvas welcome mat made out of duct tape and then followed onto Halloween stuff and was gonna go deeper when I yanked myself back.
