Identical ceiling fan as bedroom


For those who haven't seen my other ceiling fan post...Here is my story.

My husband refuses to let me replace my 2 identical standard ugly white with yellow brass ceiling fans.  He says they work fine, why replace them?  So I decided to change them!  So off to a meeting he went, and down came the fans, and out came the paint! 

This is my Master Bedroom Fan

I used the following~

Rust-Oleum Hammered Dark Bronze for the base
Rust-Oleum Painters Touch 2x's Coverage in Oregano for the blades...this is my new FAVORITE spray paint!  Talk about absolute coverage!!!!!!  I was completely AMAZED!  I am in love with it!!!!

I used the same glass shades that I started with as I didn't have enough of the ones I really want...I have 2, but need three!  Habitat for Humanity Restore here I come for a daily visit (well as daily as it can be, since it is only open Thurs-Sat) to check for my third shade!

Pattern or design used: My own design
