Create a Custom Ceiling Fan

This is just about the time that the original ceiling fans that I purchased for my home are starting to look dated. I could have replaced them I suppose but instead chose to try a little "recycling design". The blades were wood look with a cane insert from the 1980's. So we took them off the fan, turned them over and painted them a glossy black for our master bedroom. Voila! Instant class!
The blades from my kitchen fan got a coat of red paint to complement the red and blue/white toile scheme. See picture:!/pages/Creatively-Yours-Interior-Design/110651859738
That was just painting them. Think marbelized paint, decorative finishes, tole painting and more.

Great idea - now I'm hoping my next client has a ceiling fan to update!

I was excited reading your article. But it would be more exciting if I saw photos of your ceiling fan.
