Super Easy Industrial Style Fan Makeover
The fan started out as the below photo, a very outdated 1980’s oak and brass ceiling fan. I posted a reveal about two weeks ago of this room (click here to view) family room reveal and I avoided taking any photos with that hideous fixture. You can see the fan in the before photo and how well it fit into the style of the home prior to our changes. Yea everything was basically oak, brass, and 1985!
We of course were on a budget once again and wanted an instant upgrade without dropping money on a new fan. I thought well…we have painted everything else in this house why not try to paint this too! I wanted the style to be very industrial vintage and I thought adding Edison bulbs would be perfect.
Here is what the fan looked like before:
Remove ceiling fan from ceiling. Add cotton balls into sockets to protect the inside. Spray paint with flat black spray paint. Let Dry! Hang back up and add some Edison Bulbs. That simple!
Have a wonderful week and weekend friends!
