The previous owners put a ceiling fan box in such a place that the ceiling fan bracket and the drywall would have conflicted. I extended the electrical box lower, using a piece of 2"x8" that was cut to fit and a ceiling electrical box extender.
It's ready to finish/paint before I hang the fan.
What's the best way to make the wood match the surrounding drywall? Should I just prime and paint? Should I drywall tape the seams and mud with joint compound, then sand, prime, and paint?
I would like it to look nice, but also it is 10' off the ground so close up perfection is not important.
