How do I remove some rust and then paint wrought iron chairs?

My chairs are black now, but I would like to paint them another color. Is that a good idea?

    Sand paper off the old rust. Rinse with cold water. Let dry completely. Use Rust-Resistant Primer. Paint. Repaint after 5 years over existing paint to refresh. Meantime, just wipe down with damp rag to clean. OR you could clean them like cast-iron skillets minus the seasoning. Hope this helps. :)

    Depending on how bad the rust is (and the paint is not peeling) apply a rustoleum spray primer allow to dry and paint with Rustoleums 2x spray paint available in a very large selection of color.
