Ceiling Fan Refresh

For years, Sean had a beach-themed bedroom.  Earlier this year, we bought him "grown up" furniture and painted the walls and ceiling grey.  This change made his bedroom look like a "man cave" rather than a kid's bedroom.  It took me a while to refresh the ceiling fan, which had surfboard inspired blades and looked completely out-of-place.  We're very happy with the result, and now I wonder why I procrastinated on this project since it only took a few hours to vastly improve Sean's bedroom.

Materials
After removing the blades from the ceiling fan, lightly sand them to
"break the finish."  Wipe the blades with a damp paper towel to
  remove all sawdust and dry thoroughly.
In this picture, the top blade has been sanded.

Spray the blades with light coats of paint, allowing each coat to dry
thoroughly before applying the next coat.  For this project, I used three
coats of paint.  Reinstall the blades when completely dry.
