DIYable Candle Chandelier

I spotted this picture on Daily Decorator today and was reminded of an old Changing Rooms episode (the fabulous BBC inspiration for the inferior Trading Spaces). In the episode, the designer made over a dining room using King Arthur's court as inspiration. One feature in the design was a candle chandelier. Basically, they cut a donut shape out of a piece of plywood (about 3' across, painted it black and then drilled a bunch of large holes into it that would accept small clear glass votive candle holders. Three eye screws and three lengths of chain held it aloft, suspended over the dining table. It was a cool idea and suited the themed room. The candle chandelier pictured above, however, is much more refined, but still easily do-able.
