Our sun room gets lots of use in the summer and I didn't want to be so dependent on our floor and table lamps all season long. In a rare moment of productivity one day, I picked up a ceiling fan light kit from Lowes.
I also picked up ceiling medallion to make it extra fancy.
Over the weekend, Handyman got to work wiring the light kit into the fan. Pretty simple stuff.
He started by removing the cap and wired the new light to the existing wiring. He just followed the included set of instructions.
(Don't be jealous of my fancy brassy fixture, I have plans for that.)
Ta da, lights works, fan works.
Now, onto the ceiling medallion.
I was always curious to know why the fan was mounted to this square wooden board. Now I know why . . .
My puny little medallion was suddenly severely underscale, and not nearly large enough to cover the hole. Hmm. . .
You can see it here.
Oh well. A new fan will be in our future.
