As I've mentioned before, once upon a time I kept a crap-ton of aquariums. I migrated from various types of fish to newts, in my twenties; but then last year, my last aging newt finally kicked the bucket, and I took down my last aquarium. I've missed it terribly. I miss the soft bubbling in the background, the light from the water reflections bouncing around the room, watching the cats watching Fish TV, lol.
In 2006 I began building an aquarium cabinet:
|painted and sealed interior, with floor. August 2006|
...And then I stopped. I had a very good reason for not finishing this cabinet...not that I remember what it was now, five years later. But all this cabinet needed was an outside, a shelf in the middle, and a top.
That's where my trip to Lowe's this week comes in: I now have materials to create walls, doors, and a shelf on the inside. Will I get it done this weekend?
To be continued...
