Was at Lowes last night, and happened to take a stroll through the lighting section. Ran across the halogen type "pucks" intended for under-cabinet lighting. They seem pretty bright, but noticed they weren't intended for direct wiring, and had their own wiring provisions. Could these be wired differently and ran as "up lighting"?
Actually starting to think that maybe I'll just do one projection style light at each end of each beam, and just point them up the ceiling.

Yeah, was thinking about that, as well. Good point about dimming. Probably not a great idea. I really want to be able to having dimming control in this room.
Thanks for the input, everyone! Keep it coming! You're getting the wheels turning for me! I got a little behind on the project, anyway. Typical home project.
