Yea, $200 is a bit steep. You might want to 'think outside the box' (not that yer in a box, I just wanted to write that!) and look at other used or unfinished furniture that's not necessarily made for the aquarium market. (remember to write down the dimensions you need as sometimes looks are deceiving) and remember you want a height of three feet or so and strong enough to support the weight of almost 10#'s per gallon.
A while back, I was thinking about setting up my 29g (got the 60g instead) and have an unused TV stand in the garage that would work great, just needs to have the swivel base removed and be reinforced slightly.
On the 'down low' DIY, a few 2x4's and some plywood makes an inexpensive stand. Even cement blocks and a plywood top works unless you want/need fine furniture.
