I was expecting to have Easter dinner with 17 of my extended family members and I wanted the house to look nice. When I returned home from a dentist appointment, I noticed the welcome mat was partially faded.
Now, I am sick of buying welcome mats! I have spent from $10.00 to $40.00 on them and they all fade. (The expensive one had our initial in the center and I bought it as a gift for my husband.)
The result was always the same. Our home faces south and there is no shade by the front door; they barely last six months.
As I looked closer at this one, I realized it was made out of rubber and there was no wear on it, just the color had faded. I did not have time to order a new one and I asked Mr. Frugalfish to just sand the rest of the color off.
Besides, I like the color black and I know this mat will last.
