No before

I looked back through all my pictures and can't find one picture of the fan that was here before. I'll just say white/bright brass and too small for the space.

A few weeks ago we finally changed it out. And when I say we, I mean I put the blades together and handed them to hubby who was on top of the ladder.

Much better and it actually moves some air! This was the only room that had a fan at all so it was the last fixture to get changed. (we still have bathrooms to change out, but we will do those when we get around to painting those rooms) I know decorators hate fans and if I lived where it wasn't blistering hot most of the year I would love to have cute chandies all over, but I live in Texas and we have ceiling fans!

On another note - I hate that big black hole. We tried swapping out tvs a couple of weeks ago but the tv that is in the cabinet (upstairs) wouldn't get HGTV when hooked up downstairs - still don't understand that one - and this tv won't fit in the cabinet that is upstairs. Argh. So, I'm back to looking for something to put the tv in so it will be behind closed doors when not in use. I'm sure I could easily find something if I was willing to spend a couple of thousand dollars. I'll just keep looking.

Hope you have a great weekend!

I think that ceiling fans are the greatest things. When we moved into this house, it didn't have fans in the bedrooms. We made a quick remedy of that one. I couldn't live without them.

Good luck on finding a cabinet. Try Goodwill or Salvation Army. Maybe you'll find one that with some paint or refinishing will work. I actually went to an unfinished store and found something for under $300. Some sanding and finishing was all it took!

I agree about the fans! The decorators who hate them, need to spend a day inside a Texas home! When I used to watch Trading Spaces on TV, it hurt me so bad to watch them take down people's fans!!!
