Welcome to the Garden


I found this watering can at the Allegan antique market last week. The spout was missing and it was dented in several places. It was also pretty dirty.


I cleaned it up and decided it needed a stencil.


I created this stencil with my Silhouette Cameo machine.


I applied the vinyl to the watering can.


This can already had some paint spatter in a light green color. I mixed some paint to match as close as possible.



After a couple of coats had dried, I peeled off the stencil and distressed it a bit. I added a clear coat to protect the paint. It also made the watering can look nicer.


Now it is ready to use. These flowers are fake. I live in the Midwest and it just warmed up a few days ago. Hopefully flowers are in our future soon.

Whether my junk is from a garage sale, estate or farm auction, flea market or the side of the road, I love to find it, fix it, clean it, sell it or keep it. So come along the backroads of Indiana with Junk is My Life (me), let's find something vintage and do something cool with it! Formerly Junk Journal.
