Ceiling Fan Before & After



My little brother Owen (who's not so little anymore) is moving into our basement apartment. 
Caleb and I hadn't done any renovation work down there until Owen decided to move in.
Owen has very modern taste (think: black & chrome) and he's a musician, so all of that factors into the style we're working on in the basement apartment.

So far we've painted walls, trim, windows, doors, radiator covers, put down new flooring, painted counter tops, painted kitchen cabinets, used tub & tile paint, etc etc etc

There are two hideous ceiling fan in the apartment. One in the living room and one in the bedroom.
They both work really well and are in good condition, so for less than $10 they got an update.
We used leftover chrome spray paint and got a can of black laquer spray paint from Lowe's and went to town on those puppies.

The globes look yellow tone in the pictures I took,
 but they are actually clear glass and look good with the black and chrome.

This was our inspiration:
