moving and ugly chairs

So big news for those of you who haven't heard yet. We are moving!!
We are moving over a couple cites. It will be good, because we will be closer to work and closer to family.
I can't express how happy I will be to not have people living above me. No more running, balls bouncing and dining room chairs screeching all day.
But, I will miss being here. I just recently made a great friend in my condo complex and it will be hard not to be so close.

So, do you like these hideously ugly chairs? There is one not pictured on the end (so, 6 in total). I bought them at a garage sale the other day. They need a ton of TLC! But they were a bargain price and are so sturdy and comfortable. They sure don't make them like they used to!
I am still in the process of figuring out what color/colors to paint them. The chairs on our current table have keeled over and died.
I know I want to cover the upholstery with the new fancy oil cloth they have available. With the boys, it will make cleaning magical. So, I'm on the hunt for some of that. If you have any favorite stores in Utah, or online stores for oilcloth. Let me know!
Oh, and any ideas on chair colors?
I'm thinking muted jewel tones. My mother thinks I'm crazy...am I?
She says black. Which I think is bold too, so I'm open to it. Anything fun, eclectic, and casual is my style. What do you think I should do with the chairs?
All different colors? Black? White? Cream? Maybe all one color?

Depending on what your house/decor looks like I think muted jewel tones would be awesome.

Nice chairs. I would paint them different colors and do all the cushions in the same fabric.

Love them! And I can think of many different colors. My thouhts are chocolate brown. A teal color. Or antique white. And mix and match chairs. They are beautiful!
