Painting the Aquarium Stand

Painting the stand wasn’t too bad of a process… mostly because my awesome wife did it for me. 🙂

I told her I didn’t care what color it was, just what was in it. So, we ended up with Knight’s Armor (dark grey) and a couple gel coats of polyurethane on the tank. Here are a  couple update pictures:

The stand got a couple coats of polyurethane over the dark grey paint.

Using Dishes to File Up Aquarium

Using our dishes to keep the sand from being blown everywhere on the fill up. They came in very handy!

Filling up the Aquarium

Filling up the freshly painted tank. Really liking the Knight’s Armor color.

Adding Salt to the Aquarium

Adding salt to the aquarium made for quite the whiteout.

  1. We both have talented painting wives. But your tank outshines anything I can even dream of. It’s amazing.

  2. Well thank you. We’ve been slowly trying to make it happen over the last 6 months. I feel like the project is never going to end! Hopefully within a month I will have everything moved over and somewhat organized.
