This is the layout I'm going to be following
HOW TO: Build an Aquarium Stand/Canopy 1/3 - YouTube
This will be the first thing I've ever built (I'm only 13) and unsure of what kind of 2x4's to get. I will be putting plywood on the top and bottom of the frame so it will look better. And at the end do I just paint it since i want it black? Will the paint make the stand itself waterproof?
P.S. Sorry for all of the questions and long video.
