So after some investigating the original pulls I wanted (seahorse and shell) both are still available! It's just a product lowes won't be carrying anymore. I'm sure I will have to wait until Monday to place my order. Hoping to get them by Friday! Will be finishing up some trim work next weekend, and attaching hinges! If there's time we will clean, leak test and possibly paint the back of the tank too! So excited its coming together now!

Thanks! It's been a lot of hard work! There's some scratches on the glass we were worried about but we couldn't see them after we filled it. I may reinforce the silicone in some spots even though it didn't leak, it's an older tank so it has some ware.

My moms husband told me when we move next year (buying a house) we can find someone else to help! He was joking of course but everything is so heavy! My house will have to Accommodate my tank! Lol

Lol, I just came up with the design. My moms husband has been the muscles of the entire project! We've just been the helping hands.

Hoping next year when we move we'll make another matching stand & canopy (mini version) for two 10gl side by side. My QT and frag tank.

You have a skill ill tell you that! I love the trim it reminds me of a rope very nautical! Inspired me to try to make my own stand ! Won't be nearly or even remotely as beautiful but i should start somewhere ! Lol

It is called rope trim. the trim that will cover the black trim on the tank has the rope look too!
