Update Your Ceiling Fan with Spray Paint

Ceiling fans can be expensive. But with a little work and some spray paint, it's easy to transform a fan you already have. This is a great DIY project that costs very little and the possibilities are endless.

The picture above is a fan is in my niece's bedroom. This is what is used to look like.

This fan had been in storage for many years but with some pink and brown spray paint it looks great in a girl's bedroom.

Here's another ceiling fan we painted.

This used to be a very old chipped white ceiling fan. Instead of purchasing a new one, we decided to do the frugal thing and paint the old one. The new colors are more in keeping with our decor in the room.

The base and brackets of the fan were painted using a Rust-Oleum Satin Black spray paint. On the blades we used Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch Satin in Espresso. We purchased the crystal pull at Home Depot.

With a little work, the cost of the "new" fan was under $20.
