Hello Frugal Confessions Readers!
It’s Frugal Confessions Friday, and here’s my confession of the week:
There were pretty new fans throughout our home when we purchased it in September 2009. However, the fan blades were not our style at all–a light pastel color. Still, I wouldn’t dream of buying all new ceiling fans just for the sake of color, so we let them go.
My friend Helen came over and when I mentioned it to her, she said that you can remove the fan blades and paint them! I had no idea. So, over several weeks, I removed the fan blades of each of these fans and spray painted them an espresso brown. I have to say–they look high end, and they work great! Total cost to us was around $15 in supplies.
