DIY Aquarium Stand

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew any aquarium stand designs that could hold a 40 gallon breeder. I have an ikea chest, HEMNES 3 drawer chest - black-brown - IKEA,
and was wondering if there is anyway I can reinforce it. I know its kinda risky putting a tank so high but I was planning on putting some borders around it on the top.

I would just build your own. Lots of designs. Just built one myself. Other furniture is for different purposes. 2 x 6s and triangles in the corners covered in thin panels.
