How To Refresh an Old Fan and I'm Sharing My News!

February 18, 2021

I have been working on a makeover of my small spare bedroom and it now serves multiple purposes... it is a storage area for my Etsy shop inventory and with the most recent Inexpensive Storage Cabinet Refresh the cabinets are not only utilitarian... they look pretty too!

It also serves as a guest bedroom since I built a DIY Poor Man's Murphy Bed, and it is also where I have my shipping center with shipping supplies like tissue paper, packing tape, envelopes, and my printer and postal scale.

It does have one more purpose... a pretty BIG purpose in a really SMALL space... I will reveal what that is at the end of this post so stick around 😉

Bur first, I want to share an easy fan refresh.

I've had this fan for quite a long time. It's not an expensive one, pretty dang cheap in fact! I thought about just replacing it but where's the fun in that? Sometimes it's just a lot more fun to give something a makeover!

It was quite dirty and the white plastic had yellowed.

I took the whole thing apart and washed everything I could with warm soapy water. Then, taped off the areas where I didn't want the spray paint to get on the motor.

I painted the whole thing black.

Once I put it all back together it looks like a whole new fan!

And now do you want to know why I'm adding a fan to my multipurpose spare bedroom?!

It's a DIY home Gym and it's included on Wayfair's Ideas & Advice page!! They asked me if I'd like to write an article for their page and this was the result! You can check out the whole post here: How to Make a DIY Home Gym in Any Space

I've got a couple of other projects from this room makeover that I'll be sharing soon but in the meantime, I hope you'll check out the article. 

It might not seem like that big of a deal to some but trust me, it's a big deal for me! I've been running and working hard on this blog for a long time. My goal is to one day be able to support myself with it so being asked to write for Wayfair is a step in that direction!
