Before and After

Bought this tank, and had to re-stain it to match the other furniture. I just finished all the plumbing and cleaning! Here is what I have so far....

Looks good! It is black, or just a dark brown stain? Very nice either way.

Yeah nice color. Just about to skin my stand with some cabinet grade plywood. Wife wants a very light stain. My response was: "I don't want this looking like Ikea furniture". She agreed and walked away from the garage.

Would like to see how you build this up. Is this going to be FW or Salt?

Thanks!! I am very excited about getting this together. I wont have any water in it for about a month. The wife and I are taking have one last vacation before we have our first child in April. I am pretty sure if I "stay in good health" I have to wait...according to my wife! I might be able to sneak something together before then!!

I hate to break this too you but......after raising three children I can honestly say......you will have neither the time or money to complete this build for years to come. LOL But, the kids are worth it (at least that is what I keep telling myself). hehehehehe
