DIY Play Mat For Baby

Hand Painted Floral Flooring: Foam Play Mat Gets a Designer Makeover

The ordinary play mat has never looked so good. When lil ones start crawling, parents often find that their uncovered floors are too hard for lil knees. The quick solution, a foam play mat ($30), can be an eyesore for the more design oriented among us. Those with a knack for DIY projects and a steady hand may want to take a look at Sarah Baltare's Playfully Painted Mat. The Canadian architectural designer took an ordinary foam puzzle mat, painted on a few coats of primer, and then added her own floral design to create a mod floor covering that will add some color, and style, to her niece's room. Following Baltare's step-by-step instructions, any mama can create a mat that leaves a lasting impression.
