I finally updated an old brass ceiling fan in our place! It just needed a little love and paint and wow what a drastic change!
Here is the original dated ceiling fan.
The first thing we did was take it down.
I washed and cleaned all of the fan’s parts.
I covered the motor with a plastic bag and used painter’s tape to cover the sockets so I wouldn’t get paint on them. (The motor had a brass cover of the top of it)
I spray painted the brass parts with Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint. It was a primer and paint all in one. I let that dry completely.
I painted the fan blades with 1 coat of Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color Castle. I did a light coat so the old color would show through. I was going for a weather barn wood look.
Once the paint was dry, I dry brushed Folk Art Home Decor Wood Tint in the color Grey.
I let these all dry completely.
I bought replacement glass globes as I wanted to update the old ones. I got these at Walmart.
After everything was dry, we hung it back up and absolutely love it!
