Is the tank rimless? That stand really stands out, what made you want to paint it blue?

Olympia 07-30-2012 03:09 PM

I love the blue stand too!
If the walls in my house weren't crazy colors (staring at a bright red wall right now) I'd definitely want some crazy colored furniture!

haha thanks everyone, umm it was either the blue or a reddish color and my partner and i decided on the blue color! stands out alot doesnt it, very glossy, especially in a dining room with white tiles and creamy colored walls! haha what you mean by rimless?? it has little glass edges so the glass lids sit on?
