Transformed Fan

 Remember how I was THISCLOSE to finishing the girls room? Yeah....scratch that. So let's just pretend that I never mentioned the girls room. Sounds about right!

Let's talk ceiling fans! When we bought this house, every room had a ceiling fan. An ugly, hideous ceiling fan; but a ceiling fan, nonetheless. I remember seeing a revamped ceiling fan awhile back, and thought,"This'll be perfect for the uglies on our ceiling!" 

 So I took off the blades, painted THOSE, masked off the ceiling and spray painted the ceiling fan body with Oil Rubbed Bronze!


BEFORE
(Another room's fan, forgot to do a before pic)





AFTER!!!


Much better, right?!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE how they look now, and I'll be doing this in every room!



Remember to come back tomorrow night for the So You Think You Can Dance party! 
So So excited!

  17. I LOVE THIS! I have several awful looking fans that need a makeover. Did you have to prep the fan body at all before painting, or did you just get right to it?

  24. Every time I go to post my front yard re-do on a linky party, I see your ceiling fan a few spaces ahead! It looks great, it always feels good to make something ugly (that you already have) into something you truly enjoy!

  27. How did you keep the overspray off of the floor/little people under your feet? I have a fan that DESPERATELY needs this treatment. It's BLACK with that awful brass. How many coats of spray did you use?

  28. That makes a lot of difference. Nice change.
