New ceiling fan without an existing switch or light

I recemtly bought a house that the living room has no light in it at all. They used table lamps before. We want to install a ceiling fan in the living room. There are rooms above the ceiling as it is a two story house so, I am assuming I have to go from the basement/crawlspace. Can I get step by step running the wire throw the ceiling and the walls please?

You will need to find a source of power and decide how many and where you want the switches located. Most likely this will involve cutting and patching drywall.
