Andrew and I are of the mindset that when folks come to stay with us we should provide a box fan. The box fan is good for two things; 1. Air Circulation, 2. White Noise.
In our new "guest room/baby room" we have been decorating and getting things ready. Our old white box fan was dusty and disgusting! I got this ingenious (if I do say so myself) idea to clean it and make it match the room. SOOOOO.
I got my screwdriver and these two cans of paint.
|I used the glossy color for an extra fun pop.|
I took the fan apart and once I had the front and back grates off, I knew I had to do more intense cleaning. I took those bad boys to the tub and scrubbed with a brush to get all that dust off. Then I worked over the inside parts of the fan with paper towels and fantastic.
I took off the feet, the handle and the knob and set aside.
I had intended to paint the grates, but once I had the pieces separated and cleaned, I decided to leave the grates white, paint the metal tan and all the moving parts and accents the glossy teal.
|Handles and knobs...and the tan metal frame.|
Once the parts had dried, I put it back together and I now have the "cutest box fan ever". (self proclaimed).
