Initial a Galvanized Watering Can

We are having some amazing spring weather this week here in VA.
I am taking advantage of the sun and warm weather today, so I pulled out my pressure washer and some items in the garage that I have been wanting to change, clean - or redo.


I even brought my Cricut outdoors to print out a "B" for this watering can that I have had for about 13 years.
I am sharing just one quick and easy project today but I accomplished more than that this lovely morning.
With a little tropical house plant in the galvanized bucket - I can add it to my porch or use this summery accent inside my home.
(The "B" could be a little lower but I didn't use transfer tape to apply it. The Storybook - Fancy Corners Font creates really 'curly' letters that are hard to manage - it's fine!)
'B' is for Browning - our last name.
I also think of "B" for 'Bless Boston'!

What material are you using for the letter and how are you applying it??? Love your style. I just found your website, and I have been browsing daily!! I am decoratively challenged, but your pictures are inspiring my creativity. Thank you!

I love watering cans. Yours is so charming personalized with a B and love the sweet tropical plant inside. Now following you on GFC!

That's great! It's fun to see all the projects you use your cricut for. Love the watering can being used as a planter. The weather here has been beautiful too, but suppose to get rain tomorrow. Guess I better enjoy today then!
