Fixing my homemade wood stand?
I have an extra tall stand that a guy built out of wood for my 125g. I would like suggestions on improving it.
Right now the front is one huge piece of wood, then the sides are big pieces of wood. Nicer than plywood but kind of bothersome.
I like the height a lot, but wish I had cabinets and wish it looked nicer. Sort of considering spending the time and money to get a different typical (used) stand, but it is a lot of hassle, and I shouldn't spend the money.
Anyway, are there other good options besides paint/stain/varnish? I am thinking that black would be nice. I would love if I could remove these pieces of wood and put some kind of black lacquered looking stuff. But I can't afford that anyway. Seems tacky to just nail some water resistant fabric up there... could work though?
Also, the stand is holding my tank uneven. What do I put underneath to level it out? I think I would have to just guess and put it underneath the stand (above the carpet).
