I was replacing a ceiling fan when I ran into a little pickle...
the base for the old fan was held by two 3.5" big nails. After removing the old base, I found that there was nothing but a small hole with the electrical wires coming out. This is how it looks as now:
So now Im trying to figure out how to hang the new base...
I don't think nailing it back is a good idea. I don't know what is up there, and last thing I want is the fan taking a dive on the baby room.
Access to the ceiling is not easily available (it is on the garage on the very other side of the house)
Any recommendations are very appreciated.
