I used an early American stain to make it look older. This is only a first coat I still have to resand and stain again then poly coat. It will be a bit darker when done.

So the second stain coat is done I have to wait at least 8 hours until I can apply the poly coat so I should be able to finish the first coat later tonight and have the second coat done by tomorrow. Hopefully I'll only need two. I'm ready for this part to be done! I wanna get going on the filter! I've decided tho to add an under cabinet light to this stand, doubt I'll need it and it isn't necessary to a stand build so I'm not goin to include it into my total cost but If anyone wants to know it was 10$ at Walmart.

Thanks, got home late and just finished the first coat of poly. Hopefully it'll be ready to at least set the empty tank on it by Monday. I'll have more pics when I wake up later today of it after the second poly coat.
