Spray Paint Freaks

Remember when I told you about the fan dilemma around our house?

It's still not solved.

But we did finally decide to keep this old fan.



And after a very small debate, Jason took this fan apart and gave it a face lift.



I am loving the new look but I'm a little disappointed that we don't actually use it.  Although it works, we are a little fearful that the old wiring could be a fire hazard.

We've thought of re-wiring it, but then there is always the concern that little Maggie might get her tongue chopped off.






I think we'll just keep it as a decoration for now.

    I have an antique fan that I use on a shelf as part of a vignette. I liked the original patina and left it as is. Maggie is too cute!

    Maggie step away from the fan...LOL

    I think it is best not to use it, as the cords are old.

    Maggie is to funny..LOL

    We too, have another antique fan that we left alone because we love the patina. This fan was a little too worn and greasy (literally!) for me so I wanted it painted. Jason wanted to leave it, but is now happy he painted it.
