What kind of light stands do you use.  I would like to set up an indoor
light shelf system, but all of the stands I have seen in catalogs are a
little pricey in the hundreds of dollars range (and they really aren't very
attractive).  I just want a place to start iris seeds and grow some African
Violets.  Any suggestions or anyone know where I could get some good plans
to build my own shelf?  I have been thinking of something made with thick
PVC pipe, but no way is my wife going to let me put PVC in the dining room
next to her china cabinet. :)
