New ceiling fans!

We wanted to update our ceiling fans, as they were a horrible gold/brass finish with cane blades. First we began by removing the blades from the old ceiling fan. Now, FLIP THE BREAKER and ensure no power is going to the fan. 

We unscrewed the fan from the ceiling mount, and took a quick picture before disconnecting. This is EXTREMELY helpful for our house, which has some of the weirdest wiring I could imagine.

Next we screwed the ceiling assembly to the ceiling mount. One of us held it in place while the other inserted the screws.

Next, we attached the lights, the blades, and flipped the power back on. Voila!! There is light.

  3. And guys, if you did or are planning to, PLEASE don't throw out old ceiling fans/light fixtures into the garbage or recycling, especially if they're more than 20 years old. Sell them online and chances are, collectors might buy them. You have read properly; there are collector forums for old fan/light fixture/furniture collectors. Please help preserve these old things! One person's trash is another's treasure!

  4. Positive site, where did u come up with the information on this posting?I have read a few of the articles on your website now, and I really like your style. Thanks a million and please keep up the effective work.
