I have wanted a ceiling fan for Molly's room for a while. I loved the look of Hunter's girly fan but I'm not a fan of the price tag. The other day I was going for a walk and noticed my neighbor two doors up was putting his trash out at the curb. He had carried out a box that had a complete white ceiling fan. I hollered "Scott, what's wrong with your ceiling fan?". He told me that it was in their master bedroom and his wife wanted a darker wood one. There was nothing wrong with it. Now, I'm not in the habit of trash picking but what a find! He carried it down to my house for me and it sits in my dining room waiting for my dad to install it this week. I had to run to Home Depot earlier today for a specialty light bulb and decided to ask about painting the fan blades. Holy cow was it simple. A little primer, a little spray paint and voila! Pink fan blades! Can't wait to see it in her room.
