First you take the blades down and take the hardware off. I used the opposite side in case I wanted to use the white side again later. This was only good in theory because when I was done there were all kinds of paint stains on the back, Oh well best laid plans. First I sanded the paddles using a fine grit.
Next using Valspar Paint with Primer I painted the paddles with my paint roller, 2 coats. Once it was dry (I waited a day) I measured out and taped for the red lines. Be very careful because it can get confusing.
After I did one panel I went down and marked x’s on the part I needed to paint so I didn’t paint the wrong spot. I lined up the other paddles along side and taped the rest up really fast.
Here is how cool it looks when it is on!
This was easy and really added a lot to tie the room together.
