I believe I’ve told you before that I’m not a fan of ceiling fans. Get it? Fan of a fan? I also believe that when I told you that, I used the same joke. Never gets old, people.
It’s not that I think all ceiling fans are ugly or that they’re not needed in some situations. They’re just not. for. me. I had this fan installed when we built this house for our guestroom, and I’ve hated since the moment it was put in—8 years ago. Nice picture, eh?
Around my birthday, I spotted this beauty, and I knew it was just the item I needed to finally get rid of that eyesore. My birthday was October 9th. 9 months ago.
Fast forward to present day, and I was finally able to get my FIL up here long enough to install it for me. As my husband says, “I don’t do electrical.” Uh…ok.
I took a series of pictures in this process, and in none of them will you find my husband actually doing anything. He was eating pull-apart licorice. I take that back. He did turn off the fuse—more than once. That’s my MIL laying down in the background. She knew this was gonna take a minute.
After all was said and done, here. she. be. You may have noticed that I left the crystals off. Yup, I did. They were just a little too over-the-top for me, and I like how it looks a little more tailored without them.
You also might have noticed that I’ve done a couple of other things since that first picture. I’ve got lots to say about this room (the good, the bad, and the ugly), but that’ll have to come when it’s complete.
For now, you’ll just have to consider this your sneak peek.
Thought for the day: Thank goodness for father-in-laws.
