Also consider removing old globes or lighting fixtures and replace with more modern varieties. Consider removing the fan blades and disassembling your fan to paint and tape off sections to decorate. Search the internet for tutorials on how to decorate ceiling fan blades for an easy DIY weekend project.
Choose a pattern that will grow with your child:
