Looking for unfinished ceiling fan blades

Posted by wenjen (My Page) on

Does anyone know where I can order unfinished wood ceiling fan blades. I need for a 52 inch Harbor Breeze ceiling fan. I have to match the stain in the room and none of the fan blade stain colors match - so I thought maybe I can stain the blades myself. Thank you, wenjen

I kinda doubt you will find real wood blades. Mainly because balancing blades made of real wood is quite a chore. Plus, I have never seen anyone needing/wanting unfinished blades.

You might try another brand---the mounting holes in most major brands are similar.

You can always use stripper on the blades and then refinish them.

It is likely you will disturb the weight enough to need to adjust their weight to match.

The actual weight is not as important as making them all weigh exactly the same amount.
