Finished fan. That turned out nicely.
I didn't feel like taking the whole fixture down, hence the impromptu painting station. Sorry for the graininess - this is from my cell phone.
Project breakdown ~
paint: $2.97 + tax
stain: workshop freebie (use maybe 1/4 c)
time: hands on, 2-3 hrs [my fan was especially grimy]; including dry time, 24 hrs
- Turn off power at breaker before dismantling. This prevents grumbling when you interrupt others' gaming time unexpectedly.
- Label the fan blade and arm locations, so that reassembled fan is balanced.
