the ceiling fan.
Now, I have a love-hate relationship with the ceiling fan. I love the subtle noise and cool air it produces at night. But I hate the ugliness of that outdated globe. So, I found some inspiration and went to town.
What do you think?
Here's how I did it...
Gathered my supplies:
- Drum lamp shade from Target
- Double sided tape
I stripped by existing ceiling fan of its blades and the glass dome.
I measured my fan blades and cut four rectangles out of the burlap that was a few inches wider and a few inches longer than my blade.
With the fan blade turned upside down on top of a burlap rectangle, I started wrapping the burlap around the blade like a present and attaching it with double sided tape.
Until you have all four blades covered!
Then simply screw the blades back on the fan, and put your lamp shade on!
Read a book under your new light - it will make you feel more relaxed I'm sure!
