But there is something about my ceiling fans that is bugging me. I hate the brass stripe and the brass screws. I hate that they have discoloured over time and look yellow. I hate that this bothers me. Is it because when you lie in bed you stare up at the ceiling fan?
I decided I either needed to be grateful that I had ceiling fans and stop complaining about the way they look, or be grateful that I can change them - so I did. I painted the blades with a spray gloss paint in white, and the metal fan housing with white gloss Kill Rust metal paint.
|So much better - all white now!|
I have lived with this brass fan in my master bedroom for 10 years. It's the only brass fan in the whole house. I guess the people who built the house wanted to make a feature of it (they succeeded). We only have 8 foot ceilings so I just want it to blend into the ceiling so it doesn't make the room feel small.
