Hopefully it holds good it's annoying gluing things like that and piling stuff on top to get a good bond lol. You must be a big Stephen King fan :P

Tell the kids that if they will knock it again, they have to stay and hold the veneer down manually and they have to stand really still. I bet they won't go near that thing again. just kidding.

Hahaha! Might work if they weren't 3 and 16 months lol. They NEVER sit still. :/

The outside sides and top are veneer. If I can't fix it I'm going to try and convince hubby to build new sides and top and stain it to look like veneer.

The bottom is going to need reinforcing along every join. It's only held together with glue and staples.

Sorry guys. Busy Easter.
I've mostly reinforced the bottom. I've attached a back though kinda ugly and started building the false bottom. Hubby lost interest :/ so it's been all me. Lol. I'll get some pictures later. It's still pretty early in the morning here.
I've got some exterior paint. I went with white. It's (apparently) safe for areas of rainwater run off used for human consumption. The tanks going to be topless so I didn't want to have evaporation dripping from the paint into the tank poisoning the fish.
