UPDATE on Vintage Ceilings Fans: 11/2/17
Yesterday we bought one of the fans below thanks to all your feedback here, on Instagram and on Facebook and last night we installed it! To find out which we one we ultimately went with… check out the picture of the installed fan at the bottom of the post!
First, this post contains affiliate links to vintage ceiling fans from Home depot (all under $200!), which means I make a small commission from products purchased from the links below with no increase in cost to you. But I don’t really care if you buy the fans, I want you to tell me which one you like best for our fixer upper remodel!!
Secondly, I know these kinds of big decisions on fixer upper’s have to be made but I didn’t realize it was already time to make some very important decisions (okay, I’m being dramatic)…
Mr. Stone Head came to
inspect my paint job frame out for the tub in our future master bathroom and while we were in the living room, he looked up and said “you know, you can pick out a light fixture now.”
I did my happy dance.
And then went home and picked out some cool ceilings fans… because what else would I do? However, Mr. Stone Head doesn’t really like ceiling fans! I never knew that! You learn something new every day. But here’s the thing, I like ceiling fans mainly for the purpose they serve, to move air… they cool me off when I’m hot and I like that. I’ll take a look at some light fixtures but I really think the living room could use a fan!
So here are my options (all are clickable affiliate links), what do you think?!? Let me know in the comments! And do you like or dislike ceiling fans?!
Vintage Ceiling Fans for Under $200 from Home Depot
This first one has my heart. It’s under $200 and has that vintage farmhouse-y, yet modern feel. It also got almost 5 out of 5 stars on the ratings from home depot, out of over 400 people – just sayin’. There’s just something about those square blades that I love and I’m really digging the lightbulbs and clear shades.
Next up we have this unique little guy. If you know what our fixer upper looks like (if not, check out the before pictures here) you might agree that this one would go well with the “feel” of the house. It was built in 1944 and this fan just has that 1944 feel to me. The inlays on the blades of the fan are probably what give it that old timey feel, wouldn’t you agree?4
This last one I kept going back to and wasn’t even going to keep in this post but when I showed it to Mr. Stone Head he said it was one of his favorites so I had to keep it!So there you have it!! I found five vintage ceiling fans I really like so far and they all fit within my budget! After you leave your vote for which ceiling fan is your favorite, take a look at this post, it’s all about modern farmhouse chandeliers!! Let me know what you think about them for the dining room!
Lastly, don’t forget to subscribe! I wouldn’t want you to forget about me! I promise I don’t spam and really only send an email when a new blog post is up!
But wait! I also promised a picture of the installed ceiling fan we chose (it was #1!!) Here are two okay-isn pictures…I’ll update with a final picture when our fixer upper is ready to move into!
