Room Divider with Panache

That was the detailed description I was given for what my wife wanted to fill in part of the open space between the dining room and family room. With that extraordinary amount of detail, that it should have “panache” I set about planning and searching. While I was happy with the retro 70’s look idea of beaded curtains my daughter had or even the swinging saloon doors my son recommended, neither seemed to have the correct amount of something that my wife seemed to be looking for.
Searching the online design catalogs and walking the aisles of the big box home stores was not proving helpful either, so I decided to use my afternoon to go fishing instead as that is a weekend task nearly as important as my DIY projects this time of year. Getting my mind off it seemed a good idea. I sat on the pier and looked down at the water where my hook swung gently ignored and stared at several good sized fished gently floating around on bottom teasing me. While it would have been preferable for them to bite my hook I found it very relaxing watching them sway in the gentle current in nearly hypnotic fashion. I realized I could happily watch them for hours and finally I had my idea for a room divider.

A trip to a local restaurant was needed and my wife was pleased for the surprise dinner out. I did not want to try to explain my idea by myself and chose this restaurant specifically for the visual aid it would provide. I also needed to see for myself to get a better idea of what might work. I asked for the table in a section in front of the bar area- separated by a large aquarium teeming with bright yellow and blue and red fish swimming through intricate corral arches.

Once we were all settled and waiting on our order and all were pointing out the fish I went ahead with my proposal. Wouldn’t it be nice to have that same type of divider in our home? It was met with both interest and incredulity, but was agreed it would be spectacular. I began mental calculations and paced off the room in my mind and began the planning.

Unlike a regular wall or door, there is need for storage to hold the pumps and filters, substantially heavier would than used to hold up a sheet drywall, and noise insulation so the pumps and filters would not be a distraction. There are ample plans available by searching the internet and the professional aquarium sites listed dimensions and helpful tips. I needed a larger tank than what was sold at the local fish store so online aquarium supply companies seemed the best source of both information and needed things.

I followed plans I found online that were specifically for supporting a large fish tank – the engineering is a little tricky to do otherwise once you figure out that a 200 gallon 6 ft tank will weigh nearly a ton when filled with water and rocks and fish. It also requires several extra GFCI outlets to run the pumps and lights. While it took substantially more effort to complete than a simple divider wall, the results were spectacular. My wife got her wish for a room divider with panache.

That’s wonderful! Great idea and great execution.

How to remodel a room:
Step #1: Go fishing.
Step #2: Take wife to restaurant.

rsa, et Nike Air Max Sale nous ????? ????? d?mes camper, chaussure adidas pas cher afin de réparer un des patins, que adidas outlet le Pandora Store choc avait Nike Online Store endommagé.


Je fis cuire Nike Roshe Run le souper, fondre Kobe Shoes Nike de la glace pour cheap nike air max le café, et donnai günstige nike schuhe aux chiens nfl store leur patée, tandis que Cheap True Religion Jeans Lon Jordan Shoes Air travaillait au ugg factory outlet patin. Après quoi, nous réun?mes une provision louboutin heels de suivre un envoi branches Boutique Ugg mortes, pour Discount Ray Ban Sunglasses le Doudoune Moncler Femme Pas Cher feu Yeezy Boost Sale Online de la nuit, et, assis sur nos couvertures, nous f?mes sécher devant la Nike Shoes Online flamme Air max dam nos mocassins Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet fumants, piqués UGG Boots Cheap sur des batons, tout en allumant Adidas Superstar Sale Online notre pipe vespérale.


Ce fut Lon qui, à br?le-pourpoint, me Nike Air Max Cheap demanda Moncler Jackets Discount Marketplace :


— Tu ne UGG BOOTS FOR WOMEN la connaissais pas ?


Je fis de nike shoes la moncler jacket sale tête un signe négatif.


— Tu air force one pas cher as remarqué, sans doute, le Adidas Originals Sale flamboiement doré Pandora Outlet Store de sa Canada goose dam chevelure, l’éclat Nike Store de ses prada outlet yeux et nike air jordan pas cher la fra?cheur merveilleuse de sa botas de futbol peau. Elle donne Doudoune Moncler Site Officiel l’impression Nike Air Shoes de la cheap uggs for women première New Nike Shoes lueur, zapatillas nike baratas chaude et rosée, des rayons de Pandora Official Website l’aurore. D’où Nike Huarache Womens Cheap le Ugg Outlet Online Store nom qui Cheap Nike Free Run lui a été donné, de Adidas Shoes Discount Marketplace ? Braise d’Or ?. canada goose jackets on sale Jamais, rappelle-toi, tu Chaussure Nike Air Max Pas Cher n’as entendu Nike Polo Sale parler d’elle Nike Outlet Store ?


Je m’effor?ai Air Max 90 de réveiller mes souvenirs, qui demeurèrent confus et nébuleux. Official NHL Jerseys Ce Toms Factory Outlet nom Hugo Boss Sale ne m’était pas Zapatillas Nike Air Max Baratas tout à Nike joggesko fait inconnu, et pourtant Ugg boots Sale il ne Cheap Real Jordans m’apprenait rien de huarache sneakers précis.


— Braise d’Or, Ugg Pas Cher En France Braise nike tn pas cher d’Or… dis-je, Pandora Outlet enfin, Yeezy Shoes Discount Marketplace cela coach factory outlet online ressemble à TOMS OUTLET un nom de danseuse.


Lon secoua ADIDAS NMD SALE ON LINE la tête.


Nike Factory Store Tu The official UGG n’y es pas. Pas du Adidas Neo Discount Sale tout Stone Island Outlet ! fitflops sale uk C’était une femme… je ne sais Moncler Sale pas comment dire…


— Mais pourquoi parles-tu d’elle au passé, comme Cheap Toms Outlet Store si elle était Cheap True Religion Jeans morte ?


Nike Free Run 5.0 Womens à cause des ténèbres Vans Black Sneakers qui Nike Shox Cheap se sont étendues sur Nike Factory Outlet son ame Nike Air Sneakers et qui sont l’égal de la TOMS For Sale mort. Yeezy Men La Braise Official Toms Shoes Outlet d’Or que newest lebron shoes j’ai connue, que tout Dawson a pandora beads connue, womens nike air max n’est retro jordans for cheap plus de ce monde. Nike Shoes Sale Store Rien Cheap Air Max ne subsiste, longchamp bags on sale en la pauvre Louboutin Wedding Shoes folle Nike Roshe Run Sale que nous avons vue hier Cheap Nike Air Huarache soir, de l’ancienne Air Max Femme Braise d’Or.


— Et Dave Jordan Shoes For Cheap ? demandai-je.


— Dave avait Michael Kors Clearance construit Nike Air Women cette cabane, Toms Outlet Online pour elle et TOMS STORE pour lui. Lui TOMS SHOES OUTLET est mort. Elle l’attend là, Descuentos Nike toujours, car elle n’est canada goose jacket outlet pas Cheap Toms Shoes Outlet bien persuadée Adidas Yeezy Cheap qu’il ne Timberland Outlet soit plus. Mais Nike Air Max Goedkoop qui peut nike air sonder le Adidas Soccer Cleats Cheap tréfonds d’une vans shoe store ame perdue ? Peut-être Canada Goose Online Store croit-elle Canada Goose Outlet vraiment Pandora Store Sale qu’il n’est pas mort. ?????? ????? Ce Ugg Pas Cher Femme qui est certain, c’est qu’elle l’attend dans Adidas Originals Stan Smith cette Cheap Michael Kors Tote Bag cabane qu’il a christian louboutin outlet construite. Mais Cheap Air Max Trainers comment ressusciter ceux qui ne sont plus ? Je n’ai pas Air Max Pas Cher voulu la chagriner Boty Nike Air et Nike Soccer Cleats Boots j’ai Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 For Sale dit Cheap Nike Huarache comme Pandora Store elle. Et, Scarpe Air Max si chaussure basket homme Dave avait Discount Air Max soudain apparu, le plus Soccer Boots Outlet nike étonné, pour s?r, scarpe nike e?t été moi.


— Je Canada Goose Outlet ne comprends goutte à ton histoire. Christian Louboutin Heels Prends-la par le Hogan Outlet début et nike sneakers conte-moi Uggs For Cheap cela.


Lon Moncler Outlet Online Mac Fane parla ainsi Bottes Ugg Femme Pas Cher :


Nike Tn Requin Pas Cher Victor Chauvet était Cheap Michael Kors un ancien Fran?ais, New Air Max 2017Air Max Sneakers dans Coach Bags On Sale le Nike Shox discount Sale Midi de la France.
