How To Reupholster & Paint Retro Dining Set?

Q: I have a retro dining set that I really love, except for the color of the upholstery. I'd like it to be black and the "cushions" are velcro'd in and come out really easily. The only problem is that they appear to be spray-painted and I'm guessing I shouldn't just use regular black spray paint on them, since it might chip off on clothing? I would love to keep the vinyl feel so cloth would be my second choice. Has anyone else dealt with spray-painted vinyl chairs like these?
