Step 1: Remove Fan Blades
This is my first instructable so hear it goes. Remove the blades from the fan. There were about 3 screws on each blade. It may very on other fans.
Step 2: Pick Colors
Decide what colors you want. I went with black as the main color, and yellow for the tips. The color is really up to you.
Step 3: Let There Be Paint!
I painted the blades black first, then added the yellow later. I used black Valspar interior/exterior for the main color. For the tips I used an yellow acrylic hobby paint from hobby lobby. It was about a 1:50. I had the Valspar in the garage.
Step 4: Mask the The Edges.
Make sure to make the tips the same width so they are even.
Step 5: Remove Your Masking Tape.
After its dry remove the tape. Tip: make sure your area is cat free. As you can see in the one picture the cat came out of nowhere and stepped on the wet paint. Stupid cat!!!
Step 6: Finish!!! Put You Fan Blades Back On.
Put your fan blades back on and check it out! I apologize for the bad pictures. Phones don't take good pictures.
