BooMama's Before and After Challenge Part 1..... Weekend's project

As part of the BooMama before and after challenge, I am slowly but surely working on the transformation of my living room. Here was my weekend project. I decided to spray paint this hideous ceiling fan white. The fan has some beautiful detail but also had high gloss fan blades and was antique brass.

Here is the fan taken apart and painted.

And Wah Lah, here is the fan in place. I can't tell you what a difference a $5.00 can of spray paint made in this room. It really brightened up the room.

I knew I liked you for some reason.. I thought it was cause of your cute name! Nope, your from MiSSISSIPPI. I love that state. I have had a booth in Canton for years. We are on the square across from the gazebo. I hope you get to come this fall. We will def. have to stay in touch. All of my blog sisters will get a good deal, not that I have ever met one at a show. But if I do that would be so great! Now you have me all exicited, smile... I cant wait till Canton. Susie H~

There's nothing better than spray paint (and hot glue). That turned out great! I am really going to have to paint my fan now.

I forgot to ask ... did you take that down from the ceiling yourself? I don't want to kill myself taking lights out, but I'm getting a little tired of waiting for my husband to do it!
