Looks nice! I always enjoy photos of light gardens. My room is so crowded (and messy!) I can't figure out how to get photos of it!

Nice setup.
Just suggestions:
1. The "spot lights" are not very good. They are more floods then spots. You are losing a lot of light.
2. The amount of light seems marginal for what you are growing. You may want to consider installing a white (mirror mylar the best, if you can find it) pull-down roller window shade on the top shelve to roll down and reflect all the spilled light to the plants when you are not in the room.

buy a regular pull-down shade and replace the fabric with mirrow Mylar.

It comes with two little brackets, which you will need to find a way of attaching them to wherever you want to mount the roller shade.

Sears also has pull-down shades. You give them the measurements, they will make them for you.

No tape just staples. I bought a 25ft x 16"roll for $12 at the big box store. It works good and its really hard to rip.

if you have a local habitat for humanity or restore store you can get shades from them pretty cheap.

hottielover14, I think you can either use a stapler or double-face adhesive tape. The roller is made of wood.
