Would You Paint These Vintage Laminate Pieces?

Good Questions

Q: My husband recently got these two not quite matching pieces at an estate auction for $20 total — and great timing, since I'm wanting to go midcentury/retro in one of my rooms. They are both laminate, and I'm wondering: should I keep them as is, or paint them? If I should paint them, any color suggestions?
