DIY Project Fiasco March 29, 2012
Is there anything in your home that bugs you, every time you look at it? I see my “thing” every day, when I go to sleep at night and wake up in the morning. For ten years. It’s the ceiling fan in our bedroom, complete with polished brass. The problem for me is the polished brass.
During my last trip to Home Depot, I saw replacement brackets for fans and thought it would be a breeze to change from brass to white trim. Not. It turns out that HD does not carry a universal size, so I could either check directly with Casablanca, or whip out a spray can and try my luck. I will probably opt for the latter.
Mr. Wonderful had a fit when he came home. He doesn’t have a fit often, thankfully (or we wouldn’t be able to call him Mr. Wonderful!) but when I removed the ceiling “collar”, the fan was left hanging by a couple of wires!
So, now, I have wires to greet me in the morning. Not sure which was worse.
May the sun shine on your shoulder, this weekend, and always!
