Tools and Supplies: 
Commercial Electric® 3 Light Xenon Task and Accent Light Kit (surface mount)
Galvanized flat sheet metal (36 in by 48 in)

In 1991 we received a bed set with a light tier over the bed. It had side drawers tiers tall enough to hold over the mirror a bridge that housed 3-incandescent lights that could be dimmable from a switch within the headboard. Over time the electrical wiring started to crack and was deemed unsafe. This six part posts series shows my solution. 

This post shows eight steps to research the light package and metal structure for this project.

Step 1: Fig.1 upper right shows the light kit purchased form The Home Depot to repair the light tier.

Step 2: Fig.2 below shows Commercial Electric® tasks lights logo.

Step 5: Fig.5 and fig.6 shows this product is approved by UL and the packaging is recyclable. Fig.6 shows the product distributed by Home Depot and a phone number if needed for assistance in setting up the lights.

Step 8: Fig.10 shows a galvanized flat sheet and not used for this project. Fig.11 shows another alternative that cost less than the 48 inch by 48 inch galvanized sheet metal that will be the support for these lamps.
