Most of the time we think that an old fan stopped being part of our bedroom furniture because it was filled with dust or for example the lid went out but he can always come back from where he left off.
Obviously our work depends on what we want for our house and the space in which we want to locate our old fan.
It is not a difficult matter to repair an old fan, just a little imagination, screws and a little paint to make the forgotten object become a new and modern experience that will make our home a better place with the things of yesterday.
Supplies you will need
- Old fan
- Sticky tape
- Spray paint
- screws (if necessary)
Step #1: Check connection
A fan that looks very nice but does not have electricity to predict will remain as a great work of art, depending on your tastes, and not as a functional and renovated. From there we would have to draw new elements of electricity and not decoration.
Step #2: Cover everything with tape
In reality, it will be anything you do not want to paint and you want to keep it in its original state or, on the other hand, paint another color that will occupy most of the fan body.
Step #3: Review your screws
Many times we left the disuse fans because it damaged a piece that we thought obsolete but the truth is that in most cases it is the simplicity of a screw that stopped making its life. In any case, to make sure everything is in place, replace old screws with new ones.
Step #4: A lot of Spray
You can try decorating an old fan, of those typical with blades that you have it of long ago. Painting a little you will see that it seems completely another fan do you want to try? try to make you the color you like and if it can be spray paint. Renew fan with paint Not that you can not paint with brush ¿Why? what happens is that the bristle marks will be seen. Stand out by spraying paint on all sides.
Step #5: Let dry and turn it on
There is nothing left but to wait after the painting, turn on that fan and see if you like it as it was and if it adapts to your needs and your eye.
Obviously there will always be ways to improve your old fan, is to adapt to the taste, to make it more dynamic to your days: make it colorful, make it with children’s drawings, make it a little more rigid with neutral colors, but that is without the wear of the past tense.
