I love vintage fans. My father gave me this one that I've previously shown in my new basement office space. He was a tinkerer and would often make some scary electrical connections. This fan once had a cord and it worked but due to the questionable safety of the connection, I removed it.
Over the weekend, we cleaned out the garage at my parents' house and one of the items that gave us a little trouble was this vintage fan. Pop hanged it up on a wall by it's base and the screw was so deeply into a stud and stripped that it was tough to remove but we finally got it down and I'm so glad we did. I remember days when this fan was on while Pop worked out there.
This one has a cord, but I will never plug it in. Again with those electrical connections. I did remove some electrical connectors and replaced them with electrical tape just so it blended a little better.
I do think it looks good in it's new home.
I had to remove my birdcage from this spot to place the fan here, so that's now the centerpiece in my dining room.
I also brought home the plant stand to the left. I am doing my best to care for Pop's plants which he loved. I also think having all the plants here brings a little spring inside.
Speaking of spring, it's going to be in the 70s here this week and "spring forward" is on Sunday. I'm so excited to get outside digging in the garden. I went for a run this morning for the first time in a month and it was wonderful.
