What Color for Scavenged Metal Shelves?

Good Questions

Q: I picked up both of these shelf units for $10. I'm going to take them apart, sand and then prime them. Any ideas for good colors (no pink, purple, maybe part yellow)? Black is fine but too safe. Any ideas for options other than paint? (And no chevrons.) Thanks.
