I just "inherited" a 90 gallon tank and stand from my boyfriend's brother's renters who bailed suddenly and left it in the house. Whoo-hoo! This saves me having to buy a bigger tank come tax time. Anyway, the tank is in rough shape and the stand needs some TLC. The tank is wood-trimmed, which I don't like, so I was planning on painting it black (or dark red...I'll explain in a moment). The stand is a different matter. It's a nice, solid wood stand with two doors, but it's painted an awful shade of green. So, I'll need to paint that, too. My problem is, I'm not sure what color/how to paint it. The tank is going in our living room, right as you walk in the front door, so it'll be the first thing you see and needs to look nice. Our living room is decorated in dark reds, blacks, golds and medium leather. I'm thinking of replacing all the hardware on the stand with antique brass. But, I'm not sure what color(s) to paint the stand. Any ideas? Oh, and the wood in the living room is all maple and cherry, but I'm not sure what the wood under the paint on the stand is like (if it's stainable or not).
