Good Questions: How Should I Update These Chairs?

Hi — I just bought six of these chairs on Craigslist, to redo and set against a white lacquer Parsons table, in a lofty apartment that's mostly white and gray. I love the shape, hate the fabric. Was thinking of painting the wood — maybe a white / gray crackle? — and either reupholstering them or even perhaps painting the fabric with some kind of acrylic (??) paint. Thought it might make for a cool effect. Does anyone know — could that work? If so, what sort of paint should I use? And any suggestions overall (paint, stain, fabric, etc) welcome.

Thanks!
