    Expensive for St. Vincent's de Paul! Looks pretty good though. I'd only buy it if you were looking for a night stand which would helpfully double as a tank stand. If you just want a tank stand then I'd build one to fit the tank. Looks much sleeker and professional .

      I agree, interesting looking piece but if it isnt fully your taste I would look elsewhere.

      BTW I have picked up some decent deals from SVDP!

        I would not pay that much for it. Look at the damage to the drawers and to the feet. Way overpriced IMO.

            Any time. My great grandmother was an antiques dealer. She gave me many pointers on dealing with older furniture. They have that piece priced as if it were an antique, but with the damage and the fact that it has been painted, it has virtually no value. I'd offer them $20 if it were something that you really wanted.

                  Agreed. Building a stand is really easy. Heck, I built a plywood tank and didn't kill anything . Almost but not quite.
