Ok the final poly coat was just put on! Finally! So it should be dry enough to bring inside later tonight and I'll get some pics with my camera to show you guys the final product. I'll total it out now.
All the things above came out to 20$
Then add the poly and stain for 9$ total
Sand paper i had already so 0$
Grand total of stand. 29$ and change so it was a bit more than what I was planning but not bad.
Grand total w/ unnecessary under cabinet lighting 39$ and change.

Pics to come later tonight. Any DIY filter ideas? I was thinking trickle tower w/ overflow. Any other options?

You're welcome! Is the lighting just so you can see when you're getting stuff out from underneath..?

Yea mostly but I could do a live filter down there and grow low light plants if I wanted too.
