Answer: 
I do not think it comes in other colors but may be able to be painted as long as you use a paint that's suitable for a hard plastic surface.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice Installed a couple of weeks ago, look nice, will see how they withstand the extreme temperatures oif Minnesota July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't fit These caps are not 6"x6". They are smaller and would not fit my post covers. Had to look elseware for a correct fit. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 6 in post caps Easy to order ... quick delivery ... easy to install. Costs more than it should and should have quantity discount including the military discount. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not bad for the price Utilized on a Multi Family project as a low budget Post Cap and it was widely accepted. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great basic cap for the price! I was looking for and inexpensive and paintable plastic to protect the top of my posts on a treehouse. This fit the bill perfectly and was much cheaper then a number of options out there. The ship to store feature was excellent too. January 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple and Effective Post Caps We were looking for a simple and effective way to protect the 15 6X6 posts on our deck. We wanted a low maintenance, unobtrusive, and economical way to keep rain out and they needed to look good too. These caps filled the bill. We installed with #8 coated common nails with a dab of caulking inside the nail hole to prevent leakage there. They've only been installed for a month but so far so good. An installation tip is to make sure you don't over drive the nail as that creates a hollow that can hold water. April 16, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defective manufacturing process Poor Manufacturing process ... The hole in the top was drilled or punched with too much pressure causing a crack that will become obvious when you nail or screw the cover to a post. Even the slightest pressure from a mounting screw or nail will expose the crack. December 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well and a bargain! The caps worked well to cover some dock posts. And the price was good too. March 27, 2013
