I have a thread on here that I made when I built my 30g/10g stand. You could use the space where I put the 10g for storage. You could put some doors on it and make it look real nice. I have the link to the plans I used and some other things that might be helpful along the way in my post. If you have any questions about it feel free to ask!

My thread:
30g long and 10g stand

FishandTips.com: do it yourself aquarium stands

In all honesty it would probably be cheaper to find a used bedroom/LR end table and refinish it (if it needs it).

I would also add that if you went with a DIY stand, you would probably be ok with just one 2x4 on each corner with a 15g tank. Two 2x4s on each corner would probably be overkill but it is up to you. I would consider wrapping it in some type of plywood to give it some rigidity.

Good point on the furniture CaptainAhab, probably find some cheap dressers/night stands that might work for you. Just make sure they are sturdy!
