So, this is my first time posting for DIY day over at A Soft Place to Land. So, here goes.
Introducing Mr. Ceiling Fan. He’s very humdrum about himself because he has that tacky fake gold color all over and his blades aren’t even real wood. They don’t look anywhere close to real wood! In fact, no man should ever be forced to wear ruffles or frills.
So introducing Mrs. Spray Paint. We all know how women can help men get past their issues.
Ok, Ok, enough with the story time. This is my first time I have ever used spray paint to do anything. I got a cheap plastic drop cloth for the dining room table. I also used grocery bags taped to the ceiling, an idea I got from a previous DIY Day post where they painted their outdoor lights without taking them down. I stuffed the light sockets with grocery bags as well. Hey, they were the first thing I could find.
A couple of coats later, and I couldn’t believe my eyes.
I spray painted both sides to the blades and then spray painted very lightly the screws for the globes and to reattach the fan blades. And with the purchase of some $3.44 glass globes from Walmart, I now have a new ceiling fan. At least my husband thought so when he got home from the worship conference. “Is that new? No, really, did you buy that?” If you add up the spray paint, the drop cloth, and the new globes and light bulbs, my ceiling fan cost about $20. And I’m very happy to not have to buy a brand new ceiling fan for the dining room.
