Well my walls are a darker green so I think the copper color would look really well abs they would match my bamboo floors as well. The wife wants to see it on a test piece first to see how it would look.

What about this??? Home depot has that crackle paint. Maybe black with the copper underneath? It will look distressed. Kind of understated with a bit of pop?

This would be pretty sweet. Definitely something to think about. Thanks for the idea!

Let me know what you decide. Interested to see the crackle. Thinking of painting my bedroom furniture like that?? It's light wood, and I'm over the pine look.

I talked it over with the wife when I got home she liked just the plain white so it will be staying that way.

Yeah, we wives always win in the end. My hubby tries to fight it sometimes, but always comes around. I talked him into a second tank...so I have the original 54g that I turned reef and he has a new (used from Craigslist) 180g fowlr. Also talked into Radions for the reef

Here is the stand all painted. I am going to try to hang the door tonight. Have to see how I feel after work. First Sunday I have worked in five years, first Sunday the store has ever been opened in 8 years. D@m!! Corporate a$$ holes.

Update: I got my FishNeedIt fixture in today!

First impressions: Good looking fixture, wish it was black instead of silver, like the fish cutouts on top, the details are not as refined as nicer fixtures ( rough edges inside, reflector was dented/crushed in two spots, some of the screws have really sharp edges where the builder stripped the heads, just little details)

Now onto the legs. I am trying to figure out how you are supposed to mount them. Anyone who has one of these fixtures: does it not come with some screws to put the legs on? I had one screw rolling around the inside of the fixture when I opened it but there are none for the legs, which clearly have a spot for them. Do I need to go dig some out or is there a secret chamber in the packaging that I missed?

Thanks for the help, pics to come when I get the legs mounted.
