I had big plans of changing out the ceiling fan for something like a a drum pendant, but then Summer in South Alabama hit. It is HOT. This is the first time that we have lived in a 2 story house and we are finding that using a ceiling fan is necessary. SO, I decided that instead of replacing the ugly thing, I'd see if I could give it a make over.
Here is what it looks like now. After a coat of primer and oil rubbed bronze spray paint. I flipped the blades over to the the side with a darker wood tone, and voila, a new ceiling fan.
I'm still not a big fan of the ceiling fan in general, but this one doesn't bother as much as it did.
Here is a sneak peek at what I have been working on.
