That old ugly brass or gold ceiling fan that you have been thinking about replacing can be easily transformed to look modern. All you need is a few hours and the right type of spray paint. Simply grab a screwdriver or cordless drill and take off the blades, light fixture assembly, and blade holders off. Once you have the parts taken off, clean the pieces you are going to paint and lay down some newspaper. Put the fan pieces on the newspaper and then simply spray paint all the parts of your fan and wait to dry. You can even paint the fan blades if you want. Once dry, reassemble your fan and it will completely transform it from old to new! See our step-by-step below.
