Yesterday I told you that I was taking down the ceiling fan in the Big Boy bedroom
Well today I’m here to say that I will be adding a fan to the room! I know you’re thinking that doesn’t make sense, but hear me out. I removed my ceiling fan and replaced it with this beautiful chandelier
But, I must confess, it gets hot in my bedroom. Yes we have air condition, but with Georgia’s heat (95+), my A/C throws in the towel sometimes! I told you the other day that it completely went out on us (we had it fixed!). So although I am a lover of a nice light fixture I am also a lover of cool breezes when I’m asleep and so are my kids;-)
With all of that said, lets get to the point and talk about my love for vintage fans. I like the look of vintage fans. I passed one up at an estate sale a few months back and have been kicking myself ever since.
To solve that problem in the Big Boy room, I went out and purchased this
I think it ties in well with the room. I purchased this one from Walmart for $28. I know a lot of you don’t like to shop at walmart, but there are other places that carry “vintage” fans
I really like these (above). They are $69 and they also come in white, chrome, and I think black! I may have to get one for Nick and Brens room! Target also carry them for about $50 (by Hunter). And I’m pretty sure you can find them at a home improvement store too!
What I like about the replica vintage fans is that they aren’t “finger slicers”!

If I ever find another “REAL” vintage fan, it will most likely be for show…

This is a way to have your cake and eat it too! This fan can easily be put away when it’s not in use. And when you need a cool breeze, you can just pull it out. Never have to worry about compromising on good design again and it’s a lot better than the plastic box fans;-)
What do you think? Do you like these fans? Or, do you not like a fan period regardless of what type or where its from?! I’d love to hear what you have to say on this matter!
