My wife wanted a light behind the couch so I threw one together from facial board plumbing materials and an old ceiling fan

Those cast a beautiful Light. Who would have thought to use a combination of plumbing parts and a ceiling fan fixture? You did of course :).

Great work and recycle of the materials. You turned the old into something new and beautiful. A great accent piece in the house.

Not knowing what facial boards are, I googled the term.
The seach engine suggested I might mean facia board, but that isn’t something used in plumbing.
So I selected to stick with the term facial board.
The search returned many results, but they all referred to plastic surgery.

So I’m wondering what this material is?

Don, a facia board is the board on the bottom of roof rafters that the rain gutters are attached to.

Todd, I know very well what a facia board is.
I don’t see how these lamps can be made as pictured from a facia (spelled facial in the post) board.
Perhaps I am getting the wrong pictures on my browser?

Don, I think he was just speaking of the boards the lights are mounted on.

Have a great evening, Todd
