This fan had been sitting in our bedroom and it was dusty and gross and old.
First, I took off the front face and wrapped the remainder of the fan and cord in aluminum foil.
Next, I unwrapped the fan base and wrapped the fan cage. I had to wait until it was completely dry, so there were a few hours of in-between time here.
I used a flat white spray paint for the fan base and although it’s hard to tell a huge difference in the picture, I love how it turned out. I painted the ugly brown stripes, the logo, the high/low button, all of it.
Then, I covered the whole fan and gave the paint some gold love. It went from dark gray to a bronze gold color.
As I said, sometimes its the simple things that bring us joy and this simple fan is now my fave.
