I'm completely happy with them here where they are, as they are. However, before I hung them up I had pondered perhaps painting the mats a dark gray to add some contrast. Now I'm not sure if I need to or if its worth it, considering I like them fine enough as is. So I did a quick mock up, maybe you can help. Here they are again with the white mats:
And here is what they might look like with dark gray painted mats. Thoughts? Better? Worse? Stupid? Leave as is? Thanks!
PS. How is everyone fairing after Hurricane Sandy? Thankfully, things are fine here, it was just really windy and rainy. Hope you are all ok!!
