Shawn installs a NOS chrome exhaust fan cover from our secret supplier – oh so retro pretty!

chrome exhaust fan coverToday, another happy ending to report — and by golly — we love those. Doesn’t that shiny chrome exhaust fan cover look amazing next to Shawn’s starburst towel hooks? He ordered a NOS Emerson Pryne chrome exhaust fan grille cover for his bathroom from our secret source — House of Fans — matched up to a new Nutone 8310 exhaust fan. With a little help making a custom part from a local lamp shop and a stock chrome finial cap, Shawn’s bathroom is now business.

Shawn writes:

So glad you posted about the NOS chrome grille covers from House of Fans! Just finishing up the details of my bathroom renovation, and this cover is awesome. So shiny that I almost feel like I have a chromed out car. Lol

I used this with the Nutone 8310 fan. It comes with a threaded rod that’s only 2″ but I needed a 2.5″ one to fit the taller grille cover. My local lamp parts shop cut a 1/4-27 threaded rod to 2.5″ for me which also fit basic finial cap in chrome.

Oh, and round 11.5″ filter from eBay for $7!

We’ve heard from lots of readers who have successfully combined new fans and these NOS grille covers over the last few years since our story broke — and that just gives us a case of the warm fuzzies.

    Hey Joe,
    I completely understand. I often tell people: “I might be wrong, I have been before – just ask my wife.” (Sorry, this is an old Jewish comedian schtick.)
