Bye, old fan.
The fan was directly over our bed. Since we have a high sloped ceiling, the electrician couldn't have installed the new one just by standing on the bed. So we had to move parts of the bed over so he could fit a ladder in between the bed slats. I had this entire room looking beautiful and nice and finished, and we basically had to disassemble everything.
But, it worked, the electrician came, and we finally got the fan replaced! Huzzah!
And I immediately righted the room so it looks pretty again.
Soooo ... while this isn't a great DIY story or anything like that, this was a major headache in our household for a couple of weeks, and we're both so relieved to have a working fan again!
Have you ever had to call in the pros on a DIY project that went awry?
