I am a big fan of vintage fans

 When we decided to put the vintage cabinet in our master bedroom, I started thinking about what accessories to put on top of it.
Immediately, I thought of a vintage fan in a beachy color.
 A couple weeks ago when I was able to go to my friend Sarah's barn sale, I spotted this beauty:


Not only was it exactly what I was looking for, but it works really well!
I love the hum it makes when it's on.

How about you? are you a 'fan' of vintage fans?

  1. I JUST gave that same fan to our oldest daughter. My son-in-law cut the cord off so little fingers wouldn't get, well, you know. :@

    I do love me a vintage fan. Especially the small black ones. I hope to find one more for a guest bedroom. The humm is the perfect dream machine.

  2. I do! I used to sell the in my vintage store and those things are built to LAST! I even replaced the cord on a few where they had deteriorated..and off they went! The good thing about them is if they are not a color you want (and not a valuable/collectible one) they are easy to spray paint! I still remember learning the "Keep your fingers out of the fan" lesson as a kid..it only takes one lesson! Great post! Julia

  7. I love this vintage fan and the adorable corner you put it in. My sister found some vintage looking fans at Target and they are really cute but the old ones are the best!

  8. Definitely yes! Love them! I just bought my 3rd one this past weekend! They add a lot of character to any style.

    I've been meaning to write you. We found out that our puppy will need to be put down and it's been a hard past couple of weeks! Hope you are doing well sweet girl! Love looking over your posts. I don't get on blogger very often anymore.
    Take care! ~M
