The ceiling fan in our bedroom has light wood blades that do not match our bedroom furniture. I wanted a new ceiling fan but I didn't want to spend money on a fan. I would rather spend money on paint and pretty shiny things. I decided to paint it dark to match the furniture in our room.
To paint the fan I used Krylon Primer White, Rust-Oleum Lacquer Black, and Rust-Oleum Lacquer Clear.
How to spray paint ceiling fan blades:
Step1: Remove the fan blades
Step 2: Spray with primer
Step 3: Spray paint the edges
Step 4: Spray paint each blade and follow the instructions on the can.
Be patient and apply about 3 thin coats 10 minutes apart.
Step 5: For added protection spray paint the clear lacquer and again follow the instructions on the can. Apply about 2 coats. Let dry for about 12 hours before handling.
You don't want finger prints in your paint.
Step 6: Remove the pull chain and cover with tape tape.
Step 7: Spray paint the fan pulls. I held them up while spraying them (gloves recommended).
Are you ready to see how it turned out?
