Right now I have a large bench in the pantry, about 11 feet long and 4
feet wide with a shelf built up on the back of the four feet.  This
allows me to have 4 48"  shop lights.  Two are hung from the ceiling to
cover the top of the shelf and two underneath to cover the bottom.  

I'm sure you could come up with something creative for your dining room.
PVC sounds like a good idea and you could cover it with some sort of
cloth which should make your wife happy.
