A new resolution

Do you make new years resolutions? I have made a few which I hope to accomplish this year. One of which is to take some time doing the crafts that I enjoy, but somehow always put off. So during the New Years weekend I tackled something on my to-do list from last year! Cinnamon's water dish. It was gorgeously made, but the wood was unfinished and she, being the messy drinker that she is, wound up with water stains on her nice dish stand. So, finally settling on paint and style I wanted, I went to work. (Please forgive me, I forgot to take before pics)!

Anyway here's how it turned out.

I painted it white to go for a cottage-y feel and added a silver metal crown for the princess that she is. :)

Update: Since this photo was taken the crown has fallen off. Apparently the wood glue I used doesn't stand up to well to water. Ah, but it hasn't seen the last of me, I think I will try to nail it back on. There's just a small enough hole that it may just work. Wish me luck!



  1. What a beautiful stand for a beautiful princess:)

  2. Hey there stranger. Happy New Year! Hope you are doing well.

  3. Wow...exactly what I have been looking for..only smaller of course. It looks wonderful. I don't have a princess, but I do have a Mele (Merry in Hawaiian) Yep. I would try a little nail too! Nice job!!
