So..... I'm totally feeling like the MacGyver of interior design right now- let me show you what you can do with an old ceiling fan, some wire & a drum shade. Our guest room had this really outdated ceiling fan, but we love our fans in this house. Say what you want about them, but ceiling fans are a dream to sleep with! I also didn't want to spend the money to replace it, so I found this nifty way to update it with some simple picture wire & a drum shade. I found my drum shade at Target in the clearance aisle for $9.00 in a lovely shade of cream. I then attached the wire to the three arms inside the shade. I carefully tied the wire to the non-moving stems that connect the existing lamps to the fan. It took some time on my part to make sure everything was level & adjusted to the height that I needed. For barely $10 in supplies, I've updated my ceiling fan and saved quite a bit of money. Follow PaperCanvasEtc on Facebook for all of our design tips & offerings! Happy Designing!
