Where In The World Is Dickey's Decor?

I have been incognito. Am I still alive? Still doing what I do? I am, but definitely not in the same ways that I used to. Almost two years ago I made a career change. I jumped from teaching two blocks from my home to being an assistant principal 10 miles away. Big change. I absolutely have no regrets and love my job, but my "down time" is certainly way less than it used to be.

I am still kicking around a few projects, but they are fewer than they used to be. Here are a few "recent" pictures...

This piece was a great mid-century style. It had beautiful intact Bakelite handles. I painted it a charcoal grey and it sold quickly. Sorry about the bad photos, but I didn't have blogging on my mind.

This lovely lady was light grey with a beachy blue inside.

This pink dresser was a stretch for me. I painted it bubble gum pink and top coated it with a dark wax to tone it down. It had a matching smaller dresser and headboard/footboard. It was a fun piece, but certainly had to find the right owner.

Finally, I have painted several of these French pieces. They sell quickly. I even did a custom one (or two).

Right now my garage is still full of furniture. I have two nightstands I am working on for my mom, a great wheeled dresser I am planning on turning into a kitchen island, a drop leaf table, chairs and matching hutch and a few more things I am sure are floating around. So, there you have it. I am making it a goal to get this going again. Hope you are all well.
