Good Questions: To Paint or Not to Paint Dining Chairs?

Hi AT! I'm trying to decide whether or not to paint our dining chairs. My boyfriend likes them the way they are but I've decided that he's wrong and something must be done. We bought them on CL even though I had really wanted white chairs with metal bases. Three of them are a natural color with wood grain, and three of them look blackish/blue with the wood grain coming through...

I was thinking of painting them white or black. Or possibly stripping them and whitewashing the wood so the grain still shows through, which I love. What do you think would look best? We have both white and dark wood pieces in the room. Thanks! Cassie
