An Antidote to That Boring Ceiling Fan

By Christa Terry

Yesterday’s post about patterned ceilings apparently did not satisfy my enthusiasm for interesting ceilings. Why this new obsession? Turns out, our bedroom renovation is done, and now it’s time for me to paint and decorate, and I’m considering all kinds of interesting ceiling stuff. Today, I happened to spot some sweet decorated ceiling fans that prove that your ceiling fan doesn’t have to be boring. (And that having an eye-catching ceiling fan doesn’t have to mean choosing one with blades that look like leaves.)

Aren’t these ceiling fans fun? Most ceiling fans have removable blades, so you can get as creative as you want to with paint and stencils or Mod Podge and craft paper of fabric. And whipping up a DIY project like this is super easy and super fast – maybe even one of the fastest things you can do to spruce up your bedroom!

    FYI – The images in this post are broken. When I try to open them directly, I get a 404 error (file missing). They were broken in the ceiling one from yesterday, too.

    Please try again! Images not appearing. Thanks.

    Sorry about that, folks! They should be good for the rest of the week. Problem was, someone did some server jiggery-pokery and all my previously uploaded images were lost to the ether.
