Are you ready? Please welcome our super hightech – cool down devise… the very outdated but now highly Updated Gold Fan!
This fan had been sitting in our bedroom, unused and it was dusty, gross and old.
What supplies do I need to update an old fan?
How can you easily update an old fan?
First, I took off the front face of the fan and wrapped the inside parts and remainder of the fan base and cord in aluminum foil to protect it from spray paint.
Next, I unwrapped the fan base and then wrapped the fan cage with my aluminum foil. 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 is 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 electrical cord some gold love. It went from a dark gray to a bronze gold color.
A few simple screws to reassemble and he was done! This fan now looks clean, simple and oh so much better.
As I said, sometimes its the simple things that bring us joy and this simple fan is now my favorite.
