Well hello there! I didn’t mean to disappear this past week… however the week started with landing a 60 gallon fish tank on Facebook Marketplace. Gulp.

As you can imagine, the stand that came with the tank would not do in my rustically decorated home. So I took it upon myself to study DIY fish tank stands that would hold at least 1000 lbs. No joke here… I had to get it right the first time.

As of Thursday evening, the new-old tank was filled up and it, the stand and the fish look very happy! So of course I’ll share how I built the tank base with my own rustic twist next week because it’s unlike anything I’ve seen out there yet… gotta love it when a real need fits in perfectly for the ‘ol blog too!

Sign up HERE so you will be emailed the new fish tank project once it’s posted!

So while I recuperate from working on that project and for a solid week, (yikes!), let’s drool over some much quicker and super cool upcycled projects you can make with some being under an hour…

  1. LOL as i was reading about your aquarium stand project, an audio clip from Instagram was playing in my head: “everything is content, everything is content”! such a great idea and of course you manage to make everything fit your style PERFECTLY!

    thank you so much for including my faux bamboo painted pumpkins in your feature, Miss Donna! i had fun creating them… my daughter Jen loves them so much i think i need to make HER some for her tiki-decorated home. she celebrates ‘MAHALOween’ – Halloween with a tiki twist!
