My 120 upgrade

I have upgraded to a 120 and I am going to build a custom stand and matching canopy. So far I have built the stand frame and have put the new tank on it. Here are pics of the stand. It will have three drawers and three doors on the front and a door on the right side. More pics will follow,

The tank is on the stand, the plumbing is all completed, the livestock is back in the tank and it's been re-aquascaped. Next, the exterior of the stand and the drawers. Stay tuned.

Congrats on the upgrade!
A side door is super handy for access to the sump area.
Where are the drawers going to be??
