Of course, if you're really hard core, you could put something like this together:

Thanks for the responses / information.

I am really enamored with the sleek, distressed koa finished fan. The features are also hard to beat at just under $200 (dimmable light, remote control and wobble free - if there is such a thing).

AceExplorer - The leaf designs are also very cool and fit the look I am going for. I will do some additional searches.

El Jefe - Thanks for the link

Prikli Pear - I love the design around the light. Nice work indeed. $329 for the earlier linked fan is out of my price range as well.

Am I cheating? $30 fan from the resale shop, $15 blades from the internets. $15 worth of primer and black crackle spray paint. $60 tropical ceiling fan. Some wobble.

It's not cheating, it's scoring! Nice get, that one. If the wobble gets too much, there are fan balancing kits available. My office fan came with one, but I haven't had to use it. The instructions for my patio fans suggest swapping blades from one side to the other to balance out wobbles. Not sure how effective that'd be, but there it is.

Prikli, Beyer -

Thanks much. When we started this project we wanted not only to save money, but to also look like we were intentionally repurposing items for the project. 1950s beach shack was the goal, and I don't think many of them had $400 fans in them. We'll admit that this was an absolute steal, but it goes with the overall theme of the Hut.

Will post more as topics allow -
