Mod Podge Mania...camo ceiling fan

It's time for MOD PODGE MANIA!!!! Head on over to Xazmin's and link up a new or old project, and see some other great bloggers ideas.


This is a little something I thought of doing months ago, but didn't quite get to it before Lil' Squishy Face came along. I finally found some time(not really but squeezed it in)to work on it...wonder what Hunter Dan's reaction will be...hmmmm???


We have a small ceiling fan in our bedroom...remember Hunter Dan(hence the name) is big into wilderness and hunting. Our bedroom is very decorated in his hobby...

Camo fabric I had left over from making curtains and pillows for the living room...yes he has a VERY nice wife...
Took off all blades, traced fabric, and cut...
A little mod podge(or a lot) on the wrong side of the blades...just in case we sell the house someday, and the new owners don't care for camo, they can flip them back over to the white side...
Another layer or two over the fabric....
Let dry, and seal with a clear coat spray...
Reattach hardware, ignore your kids wanting dinner, and put the blades back up...
It looks pretty dang cool...I'm anxious to see how long it takes Hunter Dan to notice...After all, this goes along perfectly with the rest of the bedroom....( a pic to give ya a hint of our bedroom)...


Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!!!

I am sooo stealing this idea. It looks great. Darkening up the blades really pulls the room together. Great work !!!!!

MiMi said...

Whoa. I never would have thought all that camo and "dead stuff" could look so cute! Adorable.

That is so smart! I am making a quilt for my bedroom, I guess now I know what to do with the scraps!

Very cool, I love it and I know what it is like to have camo all over the house and "dead things" hanging on the wall.
