I Need a Paint Color

Years ago my mother gave me this thing.  It’s made from aluminum (I think) and has been painted black in the past.

The size is approximately 2 feet wide (widest) and 18 inches tall.

Sometimes in summer I prop it in the fireplace instead of the fireplace screen. It’s a nice replication of a bouquet of flowers.  I’m not sure what the original use (if it had one) might be.

Propped up in the fireplace

I’d like to paint it just one color but I can’t really decide.

The reverse side

What color would you paint this thing? Where would you use it?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
