Well, not that exact sea fan, but 3 different pairs of matching sea fans. !! I've been looking for sea fans to frame for a couple of years now (I could have ordered some online, but never found the right ones for the right price), so you can imagine my excitement when they were just sitting on the shelf. Mom bought two large white/beige-colored fans, and I got two smaller yellow ones for just $5.99 each!
We finally went to Ikea to get frames this past weekend. We also picked up some fabric for the background of our frames while we were there.
As soon as we bought them, I knew right away that I wanted to hang them on either side of the window in our breakfast nook. Our pendant light has a similar accent color in it, so I was hoping it would work perfectly. After replacing the mats with fabric-wrapped poster board, I just stuck the sea fans in what looked like the middle of the frame, put it all back together, and voila!
So much better than the bare naked walls (as seen below, obviously in the winter).
I love it. Eventually we'll do something to the long wall on the right, too... maybe a white plate wall? My (very) long-term plan is to try to do a banquette under the bay windows and move the table and light over, and have some type of sideboard/buffet along the wall on the right. We'll see!
