Some DIY For YaWednesday, January 30, 2013
Our house seems to have been in a constant (if minor) state of remodel for the last four and a half years we've owned it. Even when we don't have a big project going on, there are still little things that are begging for our attention. Maybe it's the fact that I can't ever seem to finish anything completely....
Anyway, I'm always adding something to my list of things to do to our house, especially in the cosmetic department. My latest idea is to paint the blades of our two ceiling fans so they match. Now, granted, the fans themselves are completely different, but I figured matching blades would really tie them together, and that would be good enough for me! They both already have gold bases, so I figured black blades would look really nice. I don't know, maybe that's just me. I'm definitely not an expert on what looks good and what doesn't, but I know what I like. And I like black ceiling fan blades!
So here are what the fans look like at the moment. Nothing too bad, but they are very dated and could use a little tlc. I'm all about doing things on the cheap, so that's why I decided paint would be the route to take, instead of replacing them altogether.
Well, there you have it. I plan on taking some pictures of the process, and sharing it all with you when it's done! I figure now that you're all waiting anxiously for the finished product (ha!) that I will get it done sooner rather than later. Wish me luck that it all turns out!
P.S.- While I'm at it, I might as well finish cutting in the paint around the base of that bottom fan, don't you think? ;)
