My Kodak Moment

Yesterday I was in a funk.  An unmotivated, too much to do, foggy funk.  I had a to do list, like scrub the toilets and floors, so I was avoiding it.  A wise blogger reminded me that the last time I was in a funk I got creative with the Rock 'n Roll Dresser, so I decided to work on something that wasn't on any list.



Simple and white Before
 I had Brawn bring up an old dresser from the depths of hell (the storage room).  We got it at an auction I don't even know how many years ago, at least 18.  I know this because the last time it was used was as a baby dresser for child #5.  The oak wood was pretty beat up, so 18 years ago I painted it with a thick white paint called Melamine paint.  It was stinky and toxic and I was pregnant, how dumb huh?  The dresser has nice curved drawer fronts. Too bad the drawers are so shallow it only worked for the first 6 months of #5's life before his clothes outgrew it- he had a lot of older brothers hand me downs.  So it went to the storage room never to be used again other than to set storage room junk on.
Distressed with sander

Nice Curved Drawer Fronts
 I stared at it for quite a while trying to get some ambition and vision.  But before I could decide what to paint on it, I had to decide where I was going to put it.  I tend to scatter my camera gear all over the house, tucked in any open space in cabinets or the bedroom armoire.  So why not turn the dresser into something to house all my stuff......perfect, now I had plan!  
Most of my equipment is made by Canon and Minolta.  After my dad died my mom didn't really know what to save so I inherited a couple Polaroids and some lucky garage sale folks scored the rest including all his old Kodak stuff.  But I went with Kodak on the dresser anyhow.  KODAK had less letters to paint, that is till I added in the Eastman part.  Besides, I've had quite a few Kodak moments in my life.

I used the electric sander to sand off some of the thick melamine paint so that under the letters there would be distressing right down to the wood.  Some of the letters are hand painted on, some were stickers/decals that I painted over then peeled off.  I had to paint some letters on because I didn't have enough letter decals. 
Next time I feel a funk coming on, I'll go to the store first for letter decals.

That's my mom in her original art deco glass frame, and some of my dads old stuff.
I wanted the dresser to be highly distressed like it had been around for a while.  
I used CeCe Caldwells paint in Slate, 
sanded with very fine steel wool, and then waxed.
I decided to put the same black knobs back on.  
That makes this redo, cost me what, nothing?  Well my toilets and floors still need to be cleaned, so it cost me some time.  Some cleaning time.  Boo hoo.
The street address is the actual Eastman Kodak building. 
I'm not sure the dresser will stay on this slice of wall as I have another spot in mind. 
A new spot with old windows above displaying what else - old black and white photos.  
I'll do that part next time I'm in a funk.

  2. Another amazing project by you. Some funk! I love the Say Cheese drawer. We always say Say Cheese. CeCe's paint is not called graphite though, Annie's is. I think Ce Ce's is slate.

  12. You are on a roll!!! You've designed the perfect piece of furniture for the resident photographer...YOU! How nice that you have some of your family history displayed on top and it will be even more wonderful with a window photo collage above it.

    When I'm in a funk, I eat chocolate. Or potato chips.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Your funks are every crafters dreams. You...are talented! Who needs clean toilets anyways? That is amazing! And the best part is that the words actually mean something, it's not random! You rock!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh Bliss...I am sitting here, rying into my coffee...I had to leave my beloved Rocheser because of the demise of Kodak, and here I am in the hills of NC which is like being in a foreign country. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely dresser.

  26. I have been wanting to do some subway art, but could not decide on the names to use. How simple - you just took some family memories! I am now thinking of using my grandparent's names and their birthplace. Thanks for the inspiration! Followed over from The Gunny Sack.

    ReplyDelete
  31. That chest is amazing! Great job.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Please tell me you didn't get in a funk, think of pulling out the dresser, come up with an idea, decide exactly what you were going to do, and carry it through all in one day! If so, you have some serious mojo, girl! Bottle it up and ship it out, I'd buy a truck load.

    The dresser is fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wowza, that is amazing. How darn creative. You should get in a funk more often. Love it!

  44. This can be the opening act for the Rock~n~Roll dresser, it can join the tour and R&R can show the Kodak dresser the ins & outs of life on the road ;)

    ReplyDelete
  45. So awesome Bliss !! You do the best work. I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh my gosh, you do that in a funk? I'm scared of what you'll accomplish when you're rarin' to go!! I love it ALL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. WOW! This turned out amazing! When I'm in a funk, I literally wander around my house in a total daze and accomplish nothing. I like the idea of doing something totally NOT on the list. I want to be like you when I grow up! ha! :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. That is fabulous! No, don't run to the store next time because it's perfectly imperfect!!!! Yep, I feel you will have a lot of features coming your way

  51. You have amazed me ONCE AGAIN! Where do you come up with these amazing ideas???? I love how you redid that dresser. I never would've thought about using the letter decals like that and then pulling them back off. Genius! You know.......that dresser would look good in my house somewhere. Just sayin. So, if you ever want to part with it....... I'm calling you next time I get in a funk (which I was in yesterday too). You certainly have good ideas of how to get out of it.

    ReplyDelete
  52. What an awesome re-do! Love, love, love this one!! You have my wheels spinning with possibilities now! A little birdie told me you posted a burlap pillow from my etsy shop to your facebook and I have to give a big shout out Thank You!!!

  70. Fabulous job. LOVE the black/white contrast -- very fitting to the theme of b&w photography. Excellent job on the distressing, also.
    Question: after you paint over the letter decals, how long before you can safely peel them off, and do they come off easily? Thanks for any info.

I'm in awe. And jealous. And want to try it, except I don't really know about letter decals, but now that you told me, I'll go to the store first:)

  98. A woman after my own heart - anytime there is serious cleaning to do, I invent some other project to distract me! However, at no time have I made anything nearly as cool as this or your rock & roll dresser. I grew up near the Tennessee Eastman Kodak plant (I think all of my relatives worked there at some time or another), so I love the text. And I'll be featuring this at my Show & Tell party tomorrow - thanks for linking up!

  100. Girl you rock!!I am amazed beyond words. This one will make you smile everytime you go for the camera. I agree with one comment ,an old window with Black and Whites of your family would be a perfect accent with the vintage cameras in front. I sold my collection of camera's and can say I still miss them. I had around 18 they made a cool statment. I want to find a dresser like this and do a texas outline that wraps the front and off to the sides. Then put names of the cities across each drawer. I think you talked me into a graphite and white. But AUSTIN will be in ? color....I'm thinking turquoise. See you inspired me Oh yea and line the drawers with Texas maps ...

  110. I recognized the address before I saw the name Kodak......worked in that building for many a year!!! You made a beautiful tribute to a company that built this city of Rochester, and were a giant in the field of film. We are all sad that they have filed for bankruptcy, another great American company lost to overseas competition. However, we remain proud of all they accomplished in the fields of film, medicine, chemistry,the space program, digital work, color finishing and so much more.......

  122. Holy cow that is brilliant! When I'm in a funk and avoiding cleaning I just sit at the computer and waste my time planning projects I'll probably never get around to. I like your solution better!

  131. Hi Bliss, I found this on Hometalk and wanted to stop by and tell you how much I love it!! I've been to your site before, but never commented (I'm shy and a newbie) but I always laugh and enjoy your posts, all your awesome projects aside. The Valentine /Hey Girl was hysterical!! Looking forward to what you come up with next. Thanks.
