Painting Letters

I still have some more projects that I want to paint in Bessy's room.
I recently painted her little treasure trunk.
here it is before.  When she was younger I painted it a barn red.
Now she wanted white with purple and green.


She wanted her name on it.  I am not a good painter so painting letters freehand was not going to work.  I don't own a Silhouette or a Cricut either.
My only choice was to do something I saw my friend do on her blog with lettering.

It is so important to have the right tools.  I know this painting would have gone smoother had I had the right paint brush.  When I attempt this again, I am going to purchase the right paint brush for sure.
Here is the final product:
