Not too long ago I bought several of these bamboo floor mats from ABC Distributing for $5.95 each so I could use them when I take photos. I have an idea for one of them other than using it for photos and it needed to be black so I used some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Slate and I made it darker by adding some craft blackboard chalk paint to it. I also gave it a light coating of clear wax. The painted covered the mat in one coat and I painted the material edges too.
Here is an example of how I would use it for photo shoots.
The looks even better when a texture is added to it using Photoshop Elements.
Oh the possibilities.
And here is an unpainted one beside the black one I painted.
I will show you what I did with my black mat soon and I am going to try to paint another one this weekend.
