I recently repainted the kitchen and changed things up a bit, so it is time to do something with the ceiling fan.I wanted to buy a new one, but all the ones I found that I really liked that were modern and small were in the $300+ range. If I had the option to not have a ceiling fan in the kitchen I would go that route, but it's not an option. Between the tiny size, the ceramic tile floor, and the stove that can heat up the room to about 500 degrees in ten minutes, I have no choice in the matter. This room turns into a sweat lodge anytime I cook.

|Awesome paint. Goes on evenly. Dries quickly. LOVE IT.|
After everything was dry (I waited 24 hours), I screwed the metal pieces back onto the blades. I helped my husband get those blades re-attached to the fan. That was probably the trickiest part of this entire project. The part of the fan that the blades attach to moves around inside of the metal body that attaches to the ceiling. So it's a two man operation to get the fan blades re-attached.
But we got them up. I also switched out the original frosted shades for these clear glass shades so it would look a little cleaner and lighter. Also, I removed those old pulls and replaced them with new silver pulls (after I took this photo, of course). So there it is! It was a really quick project and cost under $25.
