Good Questions: How To Remove the Bling?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

Can anything be done? I have this cheap, unattractive ceiling fan above my bed that I'm forced to look at every morning when I wake up. It's pretty plain, but I find the gold colored accents unappealing. Since I rent and can't remove it, I'm hoping you can suggest ways to make it less ugly.

Thanks, Jed

Dear Jed,

If it were us, we would pour a glass of wine, get a step ladder and a small tester bottle of white paint and have a great time CAREFULLY painting out the gold. You can also dissassemble the parts and do the same thing.

Other than that, you could make some kind of "diaper" to go over the center which you could remove in the summer or if it was really good, could stay on.

Anyone else?
