The fan originally looked like this…
The light maple color was nice when it matched everything in the room. With the fireplace sporting a new darker color and new window treatments around the corner the fan needed it’s own updating. Each blade is attached with 3 screws and in a few minutes they were off. A little 409 and they were ready to go back on. I also had to paint the pulls so they coordinate with the room. I’m all about the details. They used to be green to match the old wall color. Now they are a nice dark brown.
What do you think???
Here is what I did to the bedroom fan when we first moved in this house.
It was also wood tone originally. My furniture in this room is an off white color and there is nothing wood tone so it stood out like a sore thumb. I used contact paper to give it a fresh look. I took each blade down, cleaned it good and then covered it with contact paper. After making sure that there were no wrinkles or air bubbles, I used a razor blade to trim right along the edge. Now it blends into the ceiling and is far less noticeable in a room of light furniture.
I wonder what will be next?????
