Norway has a Kodak Moment

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  I would have to agree.

It's even sweeter if you like the imitation better than what it is imitating.

And such was the case when I opened an email from Norway and saw this.....

via En Vintage Drom

The writer told me how my dresser inspired her to make one of her own.

Now I want to copy the copy.

And how about those old time graphics on the side doors?  Pretty nice.


The blog is in Norwegian (that's what they speak in Norway right?) but the email came to me in English.

It wasn't the first copy of my Kodak Dresser.

This one is mine.

Another lady emailed me with this one that she made.....


I walked by my suddenly boring brown bedroom dresser and gave it a sideways glance today.  I could paint it white and put black letters on it........

  7. Nice that you are now officially international! They are all great, as well as a part of history. Kodak is getting completely out of the film/photography business.

  10. That is a great reproduction! I'm with Angie - ask her what transfer method she used for the graphics on the side doors! Yours is still best, but the white does give it an alive look.

  13. That is so cool!! My latest "flattery" was ogling a coworker's Michael Kors watch. I figured out exactly which one it was, shared the link with my husband, and I magically got it for my birthday.

    Am I talented or what?!

  17. Isn't it nice to see others be inspired by your creativity and show you their twist on things? I love all the dressers, but I have to say the Norwegian version takes the cake! Just beautiful thanks for sharing.

  18. That is the best form of flattery. The other is having someone admire and comment on you work. I love the cameras on it. Looks like you achieved both.

  22. I do love that dresser from Norway! Looks like your talent is being noticed by a lot of people. That's great! That was nice of them to send you a picture and let you know that you were their inspiration.

  23. I do love yours but see what you mean about the white one. And now my wheels are turning ... I've got a dresser that I painted and hate and maybe now it would look good with some white paint ... and black typography. Hmmm ...

  25. My buffet in my dining room is filled with my photos. I have been putting off the refinishing till I decided on something I really liked. I think I've found it. :) Yours and the copies are awesome.
