Bad Apple

I love having a bowl of granny smith apples in my kitchen.  They usually sit in my glass trifle bowl and add just enough color to my otherwise plain kitchen.   

When the counter stools came from Overstock.com and we didn't like the color (We were warned from the many reviews of the possibility.), we knew just what to do.  Paint them in apple green.    

Well, it looks terrible.  Unfortunately, the cheerfulness of the apple didn't translate to the stool.  Did it get lost in the paint selection or should I change course?  I do have a few other ideas.  The red tomatoes are looking great on our counter right now.  What about the bright yellow lemons?  Or, are these bright colors better left to the food?
