Hank Transfer

Hank Transfer

Hank, or as I like to call him, the Wood Whisperer, is at it again.  He simply couldn’t allow this beaten-up and sloppily painted piece furniture pass him by untouched. (And what was up with that color combo anyway?  Blue and … muted plum?  Blarf.) He figured there was incredible potential lurking beneath. And, he was right. As ushe.

    The link to Hank’s site should be sent to everybody who even THINKS about painting and then *shudder* distressing (will this trend END already?) a beautiful piece of furniture…especially anything MCM. Well done Hank!

    Thanks so much for writing “ushe.” I’ve been thinking it works in speech but not in writing. I was wrong. It totally works in writing!!

    That dress is a midcentury classic. Wonderful to see that Hank brought it back to what it was. It’s beautiful.
