Take a look;
This is what I looked at everyday for the past 2 years!
Really? Nothing like brassy gold with shiny laminate blades!
After shopping online and in stores I just couldn't find a fan that I liked in my price range.
My mom sent me a pic of a fan similar to mine that was in a oiled rubbed bronze and suggested that I paint mine. I really wanted this one gone, but after serious shopping I decided to go for the paint.
Yep, that's right I painted right there in my living room.
No guts No glory was my initial pep talk. After hanging all the newspaper and covering everything in sight I got cold feet. But I pushed them on.. And.....
Tada!!! Liberace is gone and a dark oiled rubbed bronze ceiling fan is in!
Even the fan blades got a new coat of paint
And clear seeded glass globes finish off the new look
So, so, so, so ,so, so much better! Don'tcha think?
I used one can of Oiled Rubbed Bronze spray paint by Rustoleum for the whole project.
The seeded glass globes came from Lowe's and cost $21.00 for all three.
Total cost was $27.00! Not to shabby to give new life to a perfectly ugly ceiling fan!
