Ceiling Fan Projector Mount

The layout of the bedroom doesn't lend itself to having a TV (even wall-mounted), so a projector made the most sense. The ceiling fan in the middle of the room prevented a standard projector installation, and at the time short-throw projectors were a little outside my price range. The light fixture on the ceiling fan was about as useful as a screen door on a submarine, so I put together this projector mount instead.

The original light fixture. 120VAC is fed from the controller to the two bulbs; this was re-routed to a female plug end, which was then split off to provide power to the projector, and 5VDC to the Chromecast.
