I used paint and replacement light covers to update this ceiling fan for less than $50.
We took the fan down and removed the blades, light bulbs, light covers and chain. I painted the metal parts with silver metallic spray paint and used white spray paint on the blades after cleaning them and adding a layer of primer.
We reattached the blades and a new pull chain and then reinstalled the fan.
With just a little paint and new glassware, it now has a modern look.
