I thought I'd throw this out there. For our Old West theme this year, I wanted a Wagonwheel Light in our living room. I'm making one using a Big Lots wheel, pieces from an old chandelier (80% off at Lowes), and some custom-made brackets.
I have had 3 or 4 chandeliers hanging up in my garage for months. Every time Lowes takes down a discontinued floor-model, I see how little I can pay for it. Two years ago, I made 6 wall sconces out of one light fixture!
