Using VGA cable for HDMI signal

I have a home theater challenge. My HDMI cable to my projector is bad (I bought a poor quality cable). I've tried many ways to run a new HDMI cable, but can't see to get it through ceiling.

I have a VGA cable that also runs to the projector from my Onkyo AVR. I'm wondering if I could use it with 2 adaptors:

1) HDMI -> VGA
.............VGA Cable.............
2) VGA -> HDMI

At the moment I have to use the component RGB and would like to use HDMI for convenience (and 1080P quality) with the Onkyo receiver HDMI switching.

Would the HDMI/VGA....VGA/HDMI adaptors work? It isn't clear based on what I've read to so far.

Thanks for any guidance!
Tom
