It was a Golden moment!
I was reading a blog through Pinterest yesterday. She mentioned an old oscillating fan she had had since college. To perk it up, she painted the cage gold. It was like an epiphany for me. I jumped up and dismantled my floor fan (conveniently located as I was hoping for warm weather). I grabbed my can of Rust-Oleum Metallic Gold. I painted each cage inside and out. I was like a giddy little girl with a birthday present. I was so excited I woke up especially early this morning to finish the last side before work. I LOVE my fan.
