Surprise, I actually took time to finish the top. We have been working on finishing up the house...molding on the floor, molding around the doors, molding around the built-in...well you get the picture.
I like it. The original design called for the darker green as a border around the plates, but I forgot. I like it this way too, now they look kind of like they are floating.
