I've been on a cleaning and redecorating kick lately. My house is FILTHY!!! I don't know why, I think I cleaned it really good about a year ago!
The ceiling fan in our dining room is old and needed something besides this ugly wood look. The opposite side was a rattan look, which was worse than this.
I first thought I would paint them black, but had a bright idea to cover them with fabric. I bought this piece of fabric at a garage sale 2 years ago. I didn't have a clue what I would do with it, but loved the western theme.
I just cut the fabric larger than the fan blade, used spray adhesive, and now a new look for our fan. In hind sight (which is always better), I would have painted the edges black and just cut the fabric the size of the blade. Overlapping at the top & the tips was a pain and I think it would have been easier to do it that way.
