    ok i was not happy with the black netting so went to Joanns and got some gray and brown.
    as you can see from the pics that the gray is a bust too hard to see but the brown looks just right to me ,what do you think ?
    the black is on the left the gray center and the brown right i also included a close up of just the gray and the brown.

    Looking good!

    What you might also try is to paint the netting if it isn't exactly the right colour. I did that for a piece of camo netting once and the little bit of light brown paint made it just the right shade and while it would seem that netting is a pain to paint, it does work with some effort.

    Mesh

    I think they all are good, it just depends on the use!
    The gray (from the picture) looks like the type of opague glass that would be common in restroom windows . But I like them all! aussie

    I agree with Stripes. I don't think the grey is a bust; it looks like the "less industrial" stuff you find in high schools or other public institutions. The black and brown look more like security mesh that is installed over the glass, rather than imbedded in it.
