Another option: Get some of the reusable window tint film from an auto parts store. I got the 5% dark and it looks nice (without the paint hassle).

Thank you all so much I think I will try the acrylic sheet and paint them black and silvery grey. That way I can take it out side. My son has asthama and allergies, it just seems alittle more logical to try and go that route first. That and keep my house from smelling like paint fumes.
Thank You all Again really appreaciate it!!!!!

If color is an issue thane acrylic paint from a hobby store will work.(that is what I used) the window tint idea is perfect. you can get blackout tint online if you just want a black background.

I painted mine in a dark blue and it looks stunning but the acrylic sheet that can be removed is the best Idea as I am stuck with the one color and I wish I had of thought of it before.
