Cheap and Easy Ceiling Fan Makeover
Turn a boring ceiling fan from drab to fab with an hour and $6 contact paper. Ceiling fans aren't fun to look at but totally necessary. Follow these steps to give yours a makeover!
Step 1: Take your fan apart. Be careful to hang on to all the pieces and put them in a baggie or bowl so they are easily accessible later.
Step 2: Wash that bad boy. I almost took a picture of mine in its dirty state but I was too embarrassed. Make sure you dry it thoroughly.
Step 3: Lay out your first blade on the contact paper (with the backing of the paper still on!). Make sure if yours has a pattern you lay it out in such a way that the pattern on the front makes sense. i.e. I tried to keep a chevron peak in the middle of each blade. Note: I was unsuccessful. But if you're careful and super type A, you can do it, I'm sure. Honestly it didn't matter much!
