Cara Cooper for Howdy Honey
Textured by BB guns in the '60s and camouflaged by sponge-painting in the '90s, a family hand-me-down finally earned heirloom status in the able hands of third-generation Beja of Howdy Honey. After stripping the decorative finish, Beja taped off a herringbone pattern and selectively colored in with Annie Sloan chalk paint, creating a design that preserves the spirit of the piece's adventurous past.
