Can I paint or spray paint over a ceiling fan? We bought a new home and I'd like to paint over the kitchen fan. I can't tell if the metal fan was factory painted but it seems to match everything in the kitchen! I want to change it from green to white. The fan has 4 lights attached to the bottom. Would it just be worth spending the 125.00 on purchasing a new one?

Terri Ann, If the ceiling is not to be painted it would be best to remove the fan. If not, you may want to mask the ceiling but you still have overspray to deal with. Either way remove the blades and hardware, sand with 220 grit and wipe with mineral spirits. Spray with a spray paint. The blades once prepped can be sprayed also...Mike
