Today I Made...

A retro inspired floor fan.

My husband and I can't sleep without white noise in our old apartment there was no central AC so we had a window unit that was wonderful for the background hum.
When we moved he had to switch it up.

As we were moving out of that apartment a neighbor was doing the same and he had a pile of things next to the trash that he told us we were welcome to. Among the mess was a desk chair and a floor fan. They were in rough shape but we took them cause you know, free is free.

The fan does wonders for our sleep but it is so hideous.
I kept thinking I would buy one of these lovelies to set on one of our dressers.

But I am so very cheap so I thought I would spend a few bucks on some spray paint and call it a day.

So here is it before.

Those gross splotches on the base are some sort of polyurethane or something. They DO NOT CLEAN OFF.

Here is a little progress pic.

And the finished project! I am super happy with it.

I used this, I liked it alot.

The texture covered the weird junk on the base perfectly.


What a great idea! It totally looks like a vintage piece now. Thanks for sharing with us at the PoPP.
