For the full project tutorial, pop over to Rancho Reubidoux.
I think you could do this with newer fan covers as well, as long as they are metal. Just pop any plastic parts out, and either give it a fresh coat of spray paint or distress it and let the weather do the work. The metal will age well regardless and look really killer with the succulents. I wonder if you slightly sanded a the paint off the metal, then left the cover in a tub of water for a few days, what would happen? Anyone done this?
What do you think of this idea, you like? I love it. Next time I see a fan at a garage sale, that puppy is coming home!
Thanks Denise for sending the idea!
