Advice for Updating Kitchen Table & Chairs

Q: I bought a super-cute kitchen table and 4 chairs off Craigslist. It looks great in our kitchen and the chairs double as extra seating in the living room and game room/office. I just picked up this new cushion fabric, and am now wondering if I should refinish the entire set (table, leaf, 4 chairs) so it's worthy of its new cushions. The finish is pretty worn on the table's edges and chair arms. I would love to do this myself, but there are a few complicating factors: woven backs on the chairs, wrapped detailing, laminate tabletop. So my question is two-fold: 1. What color should I paint this set, keeping in mind it has to work in three different rooms, and 2. is it worth attempting this myself? Thanks!
