    Lime green and black or bright pink and black. Those colors would make it a lovely bench to put in the yard with a couple black pots planted with colorful flowers.

    If it's going to stay on your porch, I think burgundy wood to match your shutters with black metal. Or red - I love red!

      @Jackie Smith I LOVE RED TOO! And I have one to paint also. I was thinking of painting it black with bright cushions. Not sure yet.

    Dear @Jessica Hill , Look at me! I'm almost totally stripped naked! I have made it easy for you to just add a minwax dark walnut stain to me and then have fun playing with colors in all the pretty pillows that you can place on me! Imagine how pretty I would look freshened up with stain and the black iron! I would love it! Turqoise and Orange pillows are calling my name! Love.....Your bench. ; )
