    I had a friend comeover yesterday and change my ceiling fans. I changed the one in my daughter's room to a white one. The celing fan blades that were facing down were white. This morning when I woke my daughter to get ready for school they were brown. Last night at 8pm they were still white. This morning at 6:30 they were brown. I asked my wife and she said they were white too. I don't know what to think. Was I mistaken, dreaming, ghost, or WTF. I am still thinking about it and know they were white.

    How about taking a look at the box the fans came in to see what color it says they are?

    or look at the top of the blades, most of the time they are reversible and you might accidentally have the wrong side(color) facing down.

    its possible you saw a picture of it in the other color, and that's what you remember, even though you assembled it the other way.

    I guess that from the glare of the whole fan being white I remembered them being white. Don't know what happened. I am going to stop drinking for a while and see what color they change to. The fan blades are both brown on one side and white the other side.
