Should I Keep This Hans Olsen Dining Set?

Q: I recently acquired this fabulous mid-century Hans Olsen for Frem Rojle dining set from Craigslist. However, after getting it home I am not convinced that it works in my dining space. The table is also a little beat up as the former owners attempted to paint it white, covering up the beautiful teak wood beneath it and one chair is missing from the set. I wanted to love this table but now I am not sure about it. Should I keep it and have it restored? I am afraid if I try to strip the paint off myself that I will ruin the wood. How much would having a professional fix it cost me?
