This past week I have been slowly chipping away at the kids’ playroom. It started when I decided I was going to sell the couch we had up there so the kids would have plenty of open space to play. Only to decide later, after a little rearranging, to keep it. The new arrangement made so much more sense and we actually found ourselves using the playroom more! The only problem was that it was always so HOT up there. Now was the time to switch out the flush mount light for a ceiling fan.
I wanted it to look good and be cheap. Story of my life. I loved the look of the industrial looking ceiling fans, especially the ones with the caged light fixtures. Some prices weren’t outrageous, but they were more than I wanted to spend on a playroom fan. So… here’s what I came up with!
This was SUCH an easy way to switch up the look of the fan. The fan itself is actually the exact same fan I used in our master bedroom and put a pendant shade on. You can check that out here. All I did for this fan was take the glass shades off, attach light cages, and swapped out the regular bulbs for Edison bulbs.
Not only do I love the look, but it really is practical in a playroom where things have a tendency to get thrown around. “Mommy! Watch how high I can throw Minnie Mouse!!!”
Do we like or is it a bit strange? Honestly, at first I was bummed because I didn’t think it was as cool as I imagined it to be in my head, but it has totally grown on me now and I love it!
