I put about two or three coats of Kilz on the inside of the stand and then decided not to use the laminate, so I put a coat on the outside as well.



This morning I picked up a Semi-Gloss black paint and put a first coat on the outside.

I'm going to order these Soss Invisible Hinges. I probably won't make the doors until I receive the hinges.

Not 24 hours after I said I was going to wait on the doors for the Soss hinges, I made the doors and installed them with a piano hinge. It actually works out really well. I still need to do some more sanding on the doors with some more paint!

That is a really nice stand. Nice job. Are you going to switch the hinges out when they arrive?

Thanks. I think it has turned out pretty nicely. And yeah, I still plan on switching the hinges out. The piano hinges aren't 100% concealed and they make the doors stick out about 1/16th inch from the top trim.

Your stand looks really nice, I love the simple clean look. It's a shame to move the tank it looked nice in the basement.

Yeah I have mixed emotions. I'm sad about moving it because I think it looks really nice where it is, but it will be nice to see the tank from where we normally hang out.
