Back to the office!! Today I want to show how I added some interest to my ceiling fan.
I know that ceiling fans aren't exactly popular now days; everyone takes them down and puts up some beautiful light fixture. But this room gets all the afternoon sun during the summer, spring and fall, and it just plain old gets hot in there. So the ceiling fan is really necessary!
I originally bought this fan for $3 and painted the blades black.
You can read about that adventure here.
The next two photos show you how it looked.
It really didn't look too bad, but I wanted to change it up.
1. I spray painted all the blades Krylon Classic Gray in gloss.
I wanted the gloss so it would be easier to clean.
2. I got this great template from Jones Design Company.
(Go here to see her post and get a free template.)
I printed it out and traced it and cut it out of cardboard.
Then I traced the out line on the fan blades.
3. I just painted the lines with a small craft brush and light gray craft paint.
I'm so loving this small change!!
Here's a before and after.
Tell me what you think?
I've finished my pin board and will show ya that next!
I ended up taking it in a different direction than my original plan.
Can't wait to show you!
Thanks for stopping by!
