Fixer Upper

I love having a “Fixer Upper.” Our house was about 20 years old when we purchased it in 2013 and the prior owner had just completed a few major upgrades to the landscaping, backyard, kitchen and master bath. This weekend we tackled another Pinterest project as we continue to upgrade the details to make it our own.

We have been staring at these brass ceiling fans in almost every room of our house for the past few years so I decided to make them over instead of replacing them all. It is a lot more fun and economical 😉

For just about $50 we were able to make over multiple fans. The bulk of the cost was the 4 Edison bulbs which run about $7/each. Here are my go-to products:img_0719

I did 2 styles: an all black version with the Edison bulbs and a hammered silver version with the Annie Sloan old white with dark wax blades for the master bedroom and office.

We are very please with the results and now plan on tackling the extra upstairs fans soon!
