 i will hopefully be on the case next week-few days prep work before painting, as its square wood you could do one or more colors per edge...stuff i used is water based ronseal outdoor, way more eco friendly than oil based stuff but not cheap- this one cost 30 for the paint alone, as yours is going on a hill open to the atlantic im making the struts a little thicker so may need more paint, can mix up any color you want..personally id stick to bright primarys- red/ blue/ yellow- or aim for whats in the area...purple/grey like the rock/gorse..will be in touch next week.
 
 
That looks freakin awesome! Love the pop out door segment and the voyeuristic feel of the 2nd pic.
