Step 1: Find a Fish Tank.
(Note: The term "Dumpster Diving" is offensive. We now use the term "Being green").
Now use cleaner and get all the crud out of the tank.
Step 2: Paint The Top.
There is usually two of these plastic straps. One at the top, and bottom. On this model, the bottom was cracked, so I ripped it off.
Step 3: Make a Top.
Measure twice, cut once. Or... just lay it across the top, and cut it to fit.
Note: Leave enough material so that the board will sit on the flange of the fish tank, and not fall through.
This will eventually be the back of the table.
Step 4: More Materials.
Classic white was the way I went, But use your imagination, Any color will work, and mixing them will give you some cool rainbows.
The amount of paper depends on the size of the tank. Don't be stingy. You will need to cover the entire tank at least 3 times.
If you get presents, save the paper. rips, and wrinkles wont hurt.
Step 5: Paste Time.
The recommended Mixture is 40% Glue to 60% Hot Water.
Now you don't have to boil the water, just hot water from the tap will do.
Mix the two together in a Jar or Glass.
Use a Paint Brush to mix, and apply the paste in the next step.
