DIY Wood Mat
As a novice woodworker, I think I could handle making my own wooden plank mat like the one at How Does She? Alison made this out of wood she salvaged from her back yard, but you could just buy a bundle of stakes at your local home improvement store. I saw a mat like this at Costco for about $25 (it was bamboo), and I’m sure you could spend a lot more for a readymade wooden mat. Or a lot less, if you make your own! Use a mat like this on your front porch, inside your mud room, or even in front of your shower.
