Do you have a plan for dealing with the screw-heads? The way it looks from here you can either get slightly lighter screws or darken the wood a bit. My experience is that the latter would be easier, but if you've got a way to change the screw color easily, I'll be interested in that for a future project here...

I think we're going to find the right color screws. We've found them in wood screws, just not yet in 6-32 machine screws.

May just use the wood screws and bugger the threads.

You can't just spray-paint the existing screws?

Get tiny paint pens and draw miniature landscapes.

I always have trouble getting a good durable color and finish with spray paint...
