1 yard of fabric your choice
1 ugly ceiling fan
I drum shade
1 yard of trim
DecoArt acrylic paint
This is what the fan looked like. I already took one of the glass globes off here. Start by stripping it down. Take off glass globes and unscrew fan blades.
Start by applying Mod Podge to the blades and lay fabric down to adhere.
Wrap fabric around edges. Cover all the blades and let dry firm. When all the blades are covered and dry start applying more Mod Podge over the top off the fabric. This is very important because it allows the fabric to be wiped down when dusty.
Paint with DecoArt Black and stencil a drum shade. Any shade will do as long as it clears your light bulbs when hung. I added pretty fringe to the bottom of the shade by hot gluing. Attach the stenciled drum shade by wiring it the the screws that hold the globes in.
Paint DecoArt Black and stencil with random pattern. Any DecoArt color will do to match your fabric
Wire around screw. It should look like this.
I had to cut one of the bars to get it to fit but it worked fine. I attached the blades to the fan.
This is fabulous!!! I love it! My fan went from an ugly eyesore to this beauty! The best part is you can flip the fan blades over for a new look with different fabric! You can even paint the metal if you would like.
I love this out-of-the-box idea!
