This is my sub-adults at the moment. He's in need of a bigger one very soon so my younger one will go in here, and Sebby will get his own little 'DIY' viv :D



This is my hatchlings DIY RUB rack at the moment. Not the prettiest, but does the job well:



And this isn't a snake viv as its my Bearded Dragons but i was proud of the work i did on it so i'll post it anyway :D

I bought the mat in ikea for 10.00 then cut to size. You will need Velcro and a glue gun if your planning on putting inside the vivarium. Good luck

I have planned my next vivarium, to match my existing furniture. Sizes will be 3' x 2' x 2'
Only problem is building it is going to be tricky as I have Ikea furniture so cant buy the matching wood or color.



This is the shelving unit, but I have it turned on its side.

http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/50103086/

Any help on this one would be appreciated?

Is there a piece of Ikea furniture that matches and is the right size that you can convert into a viv?

No home depot in Uk.

Looked for matching, but nothing is near the same size.

I think I may have found the soloution? Maple is close to the birch veneer?

where is the rock backing from?, that to me is what makes yours stand out. Beautiful set up, I can only hope mine will look as good when I start getting my bits & Bob's for it
