#5 of 5’s Aquarium Project – Part 2

Phase one of #5 of 5’s Aquarium Plan is now complete. 

A suitable aquarium stand has been located, painted white and “splatter painted” with her favorite colors (which all happen to be pastel!)

She did a large portion of the work of preparing this stand on her own (or with adult supervision).  She did most of the sanding, most of the primer coat, and most of the final coat.  She also did most of the splatter painting all on her own too!! 

I’m so proud of her!!  Check out these results!

Now with phase I complete it’s on to phase II…  Aquascaping!! 

    Aquascaping is the craft of arranging aquatic plants, as well as rocks, stones, cavework, or driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium.

Now that you have seen what her ideal tank stand looks like, I’ll let the guesses commence on what the interior decoration (or “Aquascaping”) she is planning!

  1. Great job 5 of 5! I'm picturing an aquascape of multicolored gravel and brightly colored coral/rocks? I'm sure it will involve some bright colors? Looking forward to seeing the finished project!

  2. The aquarium project is moving along, it looks great, and you have a happy daughter!

  4. This splatter paint looks amazing.

    1. Thank you!! I think so to, but then again - I'm biased!!
