Hi friends!
Today I’m sharing a ceiling fan hack to update your space and increase your resale value and appeal if you’re looking to sell your house. Or if you’ve just moved in and hated your ceiling fans as I did in our house.

This industrial farmhouse fan is a dupe of $150+ fans from Wayfair. I’m showing you how you can do it yourself at home, quickly and easily! We moved into this house in 2017, and since then, I’ve hated dated ceiling fans in our kitchen and dining room. Don’t get me wrong, they did the job, but they were very dated and didn’t go with my design style.

I decided to try and paint them so that 1) they would match each other and 2) they would match my industrial farmhouse design style. Over one weekend on my maternity leave, I was able to finish both fans and they look so much better! Keep scrolling to see how I did it.
