I scanned the web searching for ideas I have seen in the past for those that have changed the look of their ceiling fans with drum shades.
Here are two I viewed and saved:
So I stopped by Goodwill after work today...no luck.
Then I stopped at Walmart and found the shade pictured above. $10! Not too bad! Plus it was not just white, it was embroidered with pretty details!
This is what my ceiling fan looked like 20 minutes ago.
Pretty plain and simple.
This is how it looked before I took the plastic off, in case I had to take it BACK to Walmart!
Attaching it like it would be on a lamp did not work, as it was too close to the blades. The shade turned with the fan on and the chains wrapped around and tangled! Attaching it as shown worked GREAT!!
This weekend I plan to paint the fan blades and maybe the blade holders; we will see. Pretty simple change for $10 and I like it!
