Do you remember my ceiling fan redo for my office?
Here's a photo to jog your memory.
I love it and I remember all the ideas I had of what colors and pattern to paint on it. I was happy with my creative results. So imagine when I was looking on Krylon's web site, at the 24 Projects they just completed, and saw my ceiling fan.
Copy Cat ceiling fan!
Do you see the same fan?
It's the same color and design and size.
What the Heck!!!
I looked for a link to my post, blog or something, but they claim this as their idea.
Now someone copying your work is a sign that it was good, and I'm all for inspiring others. You want to copy my exact idea for your house go for it, I'd love it. But if you want to put it on the Internet give me some credit. If you take my idea and tweak it, so it becomes yours, I'm for that too.
But I'm not for stealing someone else's creative ideas.
This is a big company picking on the little guy!!
I contacted them and they referred my message to someone higher up in the company and that seems to be where it stopped. All I requested was they link to my original post.
Here is a link to their post. Feel free to check it out and scroll down to the bottom and click on contact or go here. Leave them a comment on how you feel about them passing off the little guys hard work as theirs.
Sorry for the venting!!
I feel better now.
Thanks for stopping by!
