Double Layered Welcome Mats For the Curb Appeal WIn!

TIP: Add a little warmth, visual interest, and pop of color to your front porch curb appeal by layering a fresh welcome mat over a flat weave outdoor rug!
In fact, Casa de Nenonen got a little front porch spruce-up this week!

FYI: The standard size doormat I purchased (at Homegoods) is 18x29.  The buffalo checked rug (from Amazon) is 2x3.
