This one is in my family room and is on a vaulted ceiling. Good thing I don't mind climbing the ladder. I began by taking everything off except the motor and taped the ceiling up the best I could.
I painted all the blades and little pieces outside with oil rubbed bronze.
I started out spray painting the motor a brushed nickle, but my paint can clogged. Dang paint can. So through a little trial and error by switching to copper paint which was a total fail, I just painted the whole thing oil rubbed bronze.
I have worked out all the kinks in my system so the next ones I do won't take nearly as long.
Go forth and redo!
