Default Casablanca Fan Blades

The white blades get pretty dirty with the heat and humidity especially the edges....Casablanca wants way to much for new blades so i asked if I could paint them......they said paint would make them off balance ..... I have some paint left over that I painted a maple cabinet with and it came out really nice looking so, I am painting the blades now and they are looking pretty good too.
I think Casablanca is full of crap.....will find out tonight.....what do all the great OT people here think

Have some pennies ready to tape on the blade or blades to re-balance the fan.

If you put the same exact amount of paint on each blade I think it will be fine.

We have/had several ceiling fans from them and others. All have been repainted . Never an issue with balance.

I've just taken some 409 with a microfiber towel and cleaned the blades - even my outdoor fans - never had to repaint any blades.

Take 'em off, clean 'em, paint 'em, weigh 'em, balance 'em.
