While my husband is working on the construction of our mud room and kitchen addition I have been busy doing some Do It Yourself projects. This year I have found some really awesome trash and garage sale finds. I have worked on exterior lights, old wheelbarrow for a planter, and an old tiller for a decoration.
A couple weeks ago I found this fan at a garage sale for $20 and I picked it up.
Using some 120 sandpaper I lightly sanded the fan blades so that they were prepped for staining. Using a dark cocoa stain and a rag I did long strokes to make it look like grains of wood.
Next I spray painted the fan a bronze color (tons of colors at Lowe’s) for $6.97, make sure you use a few coats to make sure that its fully covered.
Here is the finished product:
Up close you can see some awesome details!
What projects have you made? I would love to get some ideas!
