I like the stand/canopy combo. makes it look bigger than what is actually is. once is trimmed and painted it should look great.

I'm most likely going to stain it or possibly paint it...

I would've gone bigger, but I didn't have the space for a 5gal... maybe next time though.

 

Really nice DIY

Thanks

 

Also hopefully I'll have the trim done this weekend.
