Looks great, I like the look of the dark top, but it might make it harder to see small objects.

Your home making tips are excellent! You are a true role model for all the housewives! Are you an architect? Your tips have got the touch of an expert and that is the reason why I asked it! All the best for all your efforts!

Wow. Thank you for those unbelievably kind words. I am not an architect though. My main profession was a service manager and now I'm unemployed and partially disabled. I just love to be creative and use my hands. I also love photography. I did all my work on nights and weekends. Again, thank you for the kind words.
