Needed stand for new 55 gal tank. Had fun making my own molding and other build aspects for the first time. My wife drew the outline for the lighthouse and anchor and I cut them. Wife did all the painting.

This is very fun. I am not going to show my wife as she will want one for sure.

Very nice design and execution, beautiful cabinet.

As I am currently completing a small project that us to be painted and you seem to have mastered the art of painting, the finish is smooth & without any brush strokes, orange peel effect, etc., can I ask how you achieved this?: type of paint?, thinned?, brush or spray?, use a sealer under the paint?, etc.

My wife took art in college and she did the paint. It was brushed on, but we are definitely going to trying spraying. It was a pain to avoid drips and brush marks.
