When my husband removed the ceiling fan to paint the family room, it was the perfect opportunity for me to give our dated ceiling fan a makeover. I knew using Chalk Paint® would be the perfect tool to allow me to transform this fan giving it a more like a farmhouse style. In the beginning, I was thinking to change the bowl for a cage (plant holder). I saw someone using something like this on Pinterest and
Watch the video above to learn how I transformed my plain Jane ceiling fan into a beautiful farmhouse style fan using Chalk Paint® or you could always just follow this step-by-step guide.
Use a screwdriver to remove the blades.
I'm using Chalk Paint® in Old White, Graphite and Coco.
I made a wash with Old White ratio 1:4 (paint to water). Paint and let them dry.
I'm also going to use the whitewash to paint the bowl.
Now, give it a coat using a wash of Graphite ratio 1:4. Paint and let them dry.
Last coat of paint, this time I'm using a wash of Coco radio 1:4. Paint and let them dry.
Apply a mix of While and Dark wax with a cotton rag.
This part is optional. I'm going to apply a little of Old White (pure) with the
dry brush technique.
Reassemble the fan.
