had swing doors, and a row of pull drawers! it was just as durable (if not more) the any generic stand.
I did the same for my 40g. I found a 36" cabinet at my local restore for $5. Painted it black, replaced the hinges and knobs. I didn't need to add anything to it, it was already very sturdy. $15 in total, and I trust it a heck of a lot more then I trust the stand for my 75g.
