Painted Ceiling Fan

Ceiling fans get a bad rap in the design world.  I've always thought it was a bit overblown, since they are often quite necessary!  But if you're stuck with builder basics and don't want to pay $$$ to install new, modern models, here is a great alternative!

I pinned this DIY this morning from Kristen F. Davis Designs (a super talented decorative painter), then thought it would make for a great post - something you may not have thought about before, but could do on your own.

Take apart your fan, spray paint the metal parts (if you want to get rid of brass, or whatever) and paint the blades.  Based on comments, it looks like the designer used layers of different colors, but that inexpensive FolkArt craft paint was mentioned in the comments, making this a really affordable project.

Filing this away for our home as well!
