Yeah, I like It.

We're hosting a new giveaway over on our little reviews and giveaway page! Head on over for a chance to win a $100 Best Buy gift card from Samsung & BlogHer. 

So it's kind of hot, as if you all didn't know. And you all know I ate my words a couple weeks ago. Now I'm back to officially say that I like the ceiling fans. I don't love how they look, but I like how they function. Not that I've given up my dresser-top fans yet, I can't do without the white noise just yet.
You may notice that the fan that ended up on the ceiling in our master bedroom isn't one of the two fans I originally brought home. After doing a bit of research I realized that we could get a fan for the same price, with good reviews and a remote control. I love, love, love the remote control. I can just flail around with my eyes closed in the middle of the night and turn the breeze up. And with the remote on my bedside table S can't do anything about it...except shiver.

Plus, look closely at the two fans I bought originally:
They both have BOOB LIGHTS!! I can't believe I bought boob light fans! I can't think of anything else that gets more flack around the blog world than ceiling fans and boob lights and I went ahead and almost combined the two. How could I have possibly fallen asleep at night looking up and giggling at boob lights? Thank goodness I noticed my mistake before S actually got the fans on the ceiling.

Speaking of getting the fan on the ceiling, if you're having trouble getting the remote control box in the housing of your fan, here's a shot of how the whole set-up should look:
The instructions were as clear as mud on this step and it took a lot of trial, error and consulting our friend Google to figure it out. Needless to say, the second fan in the guest room went up much faster...only to be taken down again when we discovered its motor was burnt out. We're experts at installing this fan now.

I'm a little bummed that my CB2 pendants are wrapped in black plastic bags and stored in the attic, but I know I'll find a home for them some day. Three in a row over a long dining table? Hung above the head of a bed each on their own switch as reading lights? Time will tell....

  1. I HATE boob fans too! I also hate flush mount ceiling lights that look like boobs. My husband thinks I just try to be dificult (since the majority are all boob lights). I have to say we have been looking at the same fan you purchased for our guest bedroom!

    Who makes the fan you installed? We've been looking for something similar...

  3. We'll update the make & model of the fan within the next week or so. We didn't keep the box so I need to go back to the store to see which is was. Oops!
