Patrice is looking for some advice: I was wondering if you could post my plea for help to your readers & DIYʼers. I need a cheap lighting solution for my bedroom makeover. I really like the 3-D Chandelier from Urban Outfitters (above, left) but I would love to add a few more light bulbs to it as seen in the Ilde Max piece at Y Lighting (above, right)....

Basically I want to buy the 3-D chandelier (which is just mdf cutouts), but I need some DIY help on how to re-create the Ilde Max fixture, so that I can add the mdf pieces. I donʼt even know if this will look nice, but the idea is stuck in my head now, so I just gotta do it!

Any tips, ideas, words advice or suggestions for Patrice's project are welcome!
