Thank you all so much for all of the sweet compliments about our Family Room Makeover that I shared on the blog yesterday. It’s much easier to clean each blade when you remove them to flip over. Easy projects like this ceiling fan update are perfect for someone who want’s a new look at an affordable cost.To keep this makeover affordable I tried to think about what I could keep but make look better. There are many people who do not like ceiling fans. We like the extra light as well as running the fan. As it turns out I still liked the style of fan I already owned. There was no need to spend money for a new fan when a ceiling fan update would work just as great.

But with using only half of our budget we alotted for living room furniture by finding an amazing set at IKEA, reusing a rug we already owned from our old master bedroom, massively transforming the entire room with just a couple of coats of paint, and using really inexpensive Craigslist finds for the rest of the space, Robert convinced me to choose what I really wanted.

Not only did we get some much-needed R&R and family time, but we also added an air compressor to our collection of DIY tools (big deal! We bought it to use with our new spray paint gun and I’ve been spraying basically everything in sight for the last 24 hours.

Well, mostly just the doors in the house, but the baseboards are whispering my name. I’m trying hard to rework and salvage as many things in this house as we can now that most of the demo is done. All-white at least sort of disappears into the ceilings.

Several years ago we wanted to put ceiling fans into all the rooms but were really short on cash so we purchased three very inexpensive white ceiling fans that were on sale for .97 for the bedrooms. They are not very cute, nor sophisticated or stylish, but they work.

They were only going to be temporary until we finished the rooms, then we planned to update them.

At the same time I am working on a project with Glidden’s new Disney paint line and the idea just came together that re-doing, re-purposing Addie’s fan would be an awesome idea! Yeah, told you it wasn’t very cute, just a plain old basic fan.
