  1. Wow!!!! This is an awesome collection!!! Who would have ever thought???? People more clever than I!!! Thanks! Dona

  2. Oh Wow! These are all great ideas! I never would of thought to ever use a floor mat like this. I love the planter, and I wouldn’t of thought that a doormat would make a very good wall decor. But I love it! Especially the white one. I’ll be on the looks for pretty doormats now.

  3. I came in to pick one but every single idea is awesome and ingenious.

    I need a lot of doormats now…
