I went to Walmart this morning to get two light bulbs for the ceiling fan (which I detest) in my dining room.
When I got home, I noticed how dirty the globes were so I took them off to wash them. Then I noticed there were little screw holes in the paddles/blades and I wondered, "Could I take these off and do something to make them look better?". I went to the garage to get a ladder and noticed the drop cloth I had taken out to cover the floor while I primed a bench I'm re-doing.
I came in and took the bench outside and gave it one coat of primer. Seeing the ladder again, I dragged it into the house and spent half an hour trying to remove screws I couldn't see because they were on TOP of the blades. I started to wash the blades off when I saw the globes I hadn't washed yet. So I washed them and put them on my place mats on the table which reminded me I was going to spray the place mats I'd made with ScotchGuard so I took them out to the garage (It's stinky stuff!) and then realized once out there I'd forgotten the fan blades AND the ScotchGuard.
I went into my craft room to get the ScotchGuard and saw my beads and wire and thought, "Hey, maybe I could make some cute fan pulls." so I grabbed that stuff and put it on the table in the kitchen.
Are you getting the drift now? Really -- I finally sat down and realized I was just like the lady in this video that a friend of mine posted on her FB page! I will defend myself slightly though because I DID get the globes washed, the fan blades primed, the pulls started and dinner ready. When I finish the ugly fan re-do, I'll post pictures. Enjoy the video and see if you don't see yourself in it!
