DIY Project: Ceiling Fan Blades In Chevron Pattern
|August 23, 2014||Posted by Ann Khee under Ideas & Inspiration|
I came across this diy project and find it an awesome and fun project. If you are on a tight budget and a fancy ceiling fan is not in the plan, give your existing fan an upgrade. Or don’t fight over Haiku Kotuku or Alpha. You can simply buy a simple white ceiling fan (easily available in any electrical shop at RM100+) and show off your colouring skills.
A fan which looks cool while keeping you cool!
- frisket film
- computer, printer and paper
- spray paint
- screw driver
- masking tape
- spray adhesive
1. Download and print the chevron pattern (you can always customize it to fit your home).
2. Spray adhesive paper pattern onto the non-sticky side of the frisket paper and cut out zigzags.
3. Unscrew the blades from the arms. Clean all blade surfaces.
4. Carefully peel down a zigzag tip to expose the sticky paper. Lay down and slowly peel and stick the masking tape. Stick as many zigzags as desired.
5. Carefully mask off the fan-blade edges and any other part of the fan blade that you do not want painted.
6. After all is prepared, spray paint the blades. Let them dry, peel off your masking tape and you are done! Now put your fan back together and cool off!
