When I was a kid, I loved to change my room around. In fact, it’s a habit that’s stayed with me through adulthood. There’s just something so invigorating about redecorating, redesigning, and rearranging a space you spend so much time in.
But in all my many remodels, I never once thought to change my ceiling fan. It’s always just been a plain and boring utility, ignored and unloved.
However, since coming across this gorgeous DIY project, I suddenly feel inspired to give those old faithful blades some attention! After all, it’s a part of the room too, so why not incorporate it in my decor?
But when this creative mom decided to give her baby’s ceiling fan a facelift, she took it to a while other level… Maybe even a whole other galaxy!
As Henry’s first birthday drew near, this mom knew she wanted to do something special for her little boy — so she decided to give his room a whimsical makeover.
She started with the ceiling fan. After removing its blades, she laid them all out on the back deck.
Next, she gave them a coat of flat black paint.
Once that was done, she used purple and navy blue spray paint to add some dimension to the black.
After the paint was dry, she taped a piece of paper to each blade. But this was no ordinary paper!
Using an X-Acto knife, she cut a series of holes from each sheet. Every blade featured a unique shape.
She then sprayed the blades with glow-in-the-dark spray paint.
The final result? A unique constellation on each fan blade!
