New pine bench seat, to paint or not to paint?

I have just had a bench made and fitted into our dining room. Smallish house, so trying to make most of the space available. It cost quite a bit and I love it. I just don't like the new pine look. I want to paint it but I can't decide what colour. I can't really afford to paint it again if I go for the wrong colour. I am not very adventurous when it comes to colours and tend to stick to a white/off white colour scheme. Have you found the perfect colour for anything recently?

If you paint it you'll need to prime it first unless you go for a colour wash effect. You could always use something like lime wax instead of paint.
