Here’s how to paint a Steelers Football themed Ceiling Fan that your football fan will love!!
We recently made over my roomate’s man cave or tv room and went all out with the Pittsburgh Steeler’s Football theme. Just to fill you in he is a HUGE Steeler’s fan. He is from Pittsburgh and has the logo tattooed on his arm. He schedules our Sunday and Mondays around the game times and SCREAMS at the T.v. like they can hear him. He is a die hard fan, but he’s fabulous about letting me do whatever I want in the house so it was time to give him a room that he would love.

We had an old ceiling fan that was here when we moved in so I thought it would be fun to paint it and add the logos onto the ends of each of the blades.
It was pretty easy to do and you could do it with whatever team you are a fan of.
Here’s what I did. I had him pull the blades off which was easy.
I took them outside and spray painted them black first.
Here’s a tip too, I like to use these plastic cups to elevate what I’m painting, it makes it easier to get the sides well and then the item doesn’t stick to the paint cloth either.
I then drew circles on for the logos and painted them in white. This was all done free hand with a bowl and I used a framed logo as a guide.
I then painted grey around the border of the white circles.
I then traced the logo and drew it with pencil onto the circles. Then my daughter joined me for a little painting fun and helped with the diamonds.
We took our time and did two coats of paint on the colors too.
We then used a paint pen to outline the diamonds and the circles. You can get a much straighter line with it then with a paint brush, or at least I can…lol.
Can I just tell you every stroke of my paint brush was done with love…he he he.
So how fun is this? It may not be in any of the current decorating magazines but he’s so happy and loves the ceiling fan and his room. We already had the fan, and I had most of the paint, just bought the blue, so the cost was less than $1 and some time.
What do you think?? Do you do any decorating with your husband or sweetie in mind??
