chair colors, help



We have decided to paint the chairs a blue color. First we were going to try to strip them and stain them but there is no way I have the patience this year to do that. Plus I would have to use some kind of chemical and I have yet to find one that I like. Then I was thinking they would look good white. But Daniel said he wants them exactly as they are except he wants them blue. I usually get the end decision in the furniture colors but the fact that Daniel was willing to steer away from his traditionalism when it comes to furniture was amazing so I immediately agreed. Thus we need to find a blue that will not date anytime soon. So I decided I want a cold blue lighter but with a grey tone rather than a green or white undertone. I need help. I think I have narrowed it down to these:



(left to right: top row yacht club, Newport blue
middle row winter lake, Bo29, waterscape
bottom row b030, shale Gray

I put the samples on the table that the chairs will be going with so that is what the wood looks like.



I need some opinions. What do you think?

i like the shale gray it's light and gives a good contrast to the warmth of the wood without making it look too heavy

that's me vote

I like the waterscape because it's not too blue but still has some depth to the color.
