We recently fixed up our master bedroom and this was one of the projects that made a huge diffence in the room. Who would have thought that you could just spray paint a ceiling fan?
What you will need:
- Spray paint. I used black semi-gloss paint that could be sprayed on metal.
- Painter's tape
- Screw driver
- Plastic bags
- Large piece of cardboard
- Drop cloth or anything that can protect your floors
Use your screw driver to take off the wood fans from the center metal piece.
I looked at some tutorials that took down the whole ceiling fan to spray paint, but seriously, who has time for that?! My way was way easier. All I did was take a large piece of cardboard and cut a hole in the center that was the same size as the base of the fan. I then taped it to the ceiling (see above photo).
Next, put bags around the light bulbs and tape them to keep them in place.
Now you are ready to spray paint. Make sure you protect your floor with something (I had a drop cloth) and open up the windows for ventilation.
After you spray paint, make sure you let the fan dry. Then you can screw the fans back on.
Voila! Instant fan makeover!
