I've been giddy about this board - finally excited to show it off to you!! Voila - my Plywood Rug:
--Here's how to make a plywood rug - or a plywood mat for under chairs - or whatever you want to call it - - buy a 4x8ft board (this one was a nice board - you could get a cheaper one - but this one was smooth - I don't know what it was - underlayment?) - then I stained it for some added color:
UPDATE Feb 2014: I have had this almost 3 years, and it looks just the same as when I first made it - the paint hasn't chipped, the board hasn't cracked or broken - - it is a winner of a project for sure!!
So ditch those expensive ugly plastic mats and make yourself your own awesome custom plywood rug mat - you'll love it!!
