Ceiling fan make over.


I've been so inspired by the different ceiling fan treatments that I had to go for it. It was so easy. With 7 ceiling fans in our house I'm off to do #2.

    How do you clean the one you put fabric on it. Mine get so dusty.

      Modge podge just wet wipes clean. I would cover whole blade in fabric- top and bottom- then modge podge over it. The DIY citus degreaser they show on here to clean ovens works wonderfully. Wipe down 1X a month in the kitchen. Other fan blades in your home won't have a grease problem. Weekly dusting- then a quick vacuum of the floor will keep them from getting bad.

    Does the weight of the fabric make the motor work harder to turn thus wearing out sooner? Thanks

    I used cut outs from leftover wallpaper in my bar area to upscale the blades on my cheap ceiling fan.
