Yuck! Outdoor Fan Got Rusty!
Revamped old rusty outdoor fan to one that is a little more pleasing to the eye!
Removed fan pole from extension rod of rusted four legged stand (Don't have pic of that). Did not use metal extension rod, as too hard to cut thru.
Unscrewed bottom portion of pole from legs of original fan and screwed on top of an old bar stool. Once apart, I spray painted the fan and the bar stool. Had an old plastic pot (looked ceramic, but wasn't) with styrofoam inside to hold fake flowers or plants.
Removed portion of styrofoam out using a knife. Used a large round drill bit that cuts opening in a door to insert a door handle, but whatever works like a chisel 'cause won't see bottom of pot.
Connected fan and fan pole to base pole by measuring and cutting a PVC pipe to be inserted into both poles (notice washer that fit around PVC pipe between both poles to allow fan pole to rest securely without a gap or slippage). Tighten screw against inside PVC pipe to secure.
Stuck fake plant into styrofoam and there you have it! Depending on your fan, be creative!
