Simple Update For Fans & Lights – Spray Paint!!

Last year I looked at all our fixtures and realized that they were all brass!  While that was popular when we built the house, it certainly looked dated now.  I knew I didn’t want to pay for 4 new fans and multiple lights.

I decided spray paint was the answer!  I bought hammered black so it would look like vintage iron, or something like that.  Tim took them down, took them apart, and I sprayed everything that was metal.

I decided I didn’t want clear shades, so I bought a can of frost for the glass.  I also turned over the blades of the fan to a different color.  I love the new look!  I posted them of Facebook, and my son away at college thought we had bought all new ones!

  1. Looks awesome! How did you get the grain of the wood on the blades to be less obvious?

    • We discovered that the other side of the blades was totally different! We turned them over and they were a more cherry wood color.
