Bent Wood Chair

Ever since I saw this brilliant yellow bent wood chair in a magazine last year I have wanted to find my own to paint. Last week the search ended and for the bargain price of $5.50 I found one the exact same shape as the one above at the recycle shop. It needs a little work, screws tightening and a wash and some sanding.
The hard part for me is choosing a colour, while I love the boldness of yellow I am not sure it's right for me. I think perhaps a blue or green, but then maybe a bright pink? It's terribly difficult! Here are some possible options:


Paints from Porter's Paints from left to right: Jungle Frog, Snow Pea, Dew, Napoleon, Bodice.
