I see that your DIY light uses 10 ELN Meanwells. Not sure how much research you did on DIY LED builds but there have been some significant concerns regarding using those numbers of ELN's. The reason is that they are not Power Factor Corrected and so there can be a large inrush of current when they turn on which can create "overheating" concerns on your house wiring.
I'm not an expert but I will be doing a large LED build soon and have been researching it a lot. I would encourage you to take a good look at the DIY LED build.
