Drab to Fab with one can of spray primer and one can of satin spray paint.
There was no need to buy a new fan when paint can spruce it up.
I turned the power to the fan off.
Removed the screws to the light kit, fan paddles and fan base plate that were all in tacky brass.
A couple of light coats of primer and paint each.
The fan was back together few hours later and VIOLA!
Tips: I covered inside of light kit with blue tap so the electrical connections didn't get sprayed.
I sprayed all my screws by standing them up on old piece of packing styrofoam. They stood up like soldiers. Covered beautifully.
