    They look like they could use a new finish. Rust-Oleum's Painter's touch line of spray paints has a lot of colors and gives excellent coverage. Don't worry about updating. If you like the look that is all that matters.

    A lot of people are painting them. Good luck.

      What kind of paint would you use and would you have to treat the metal with something first to prep it?

    I actually really like those! Rustoleum is great on metal, and they have a huge variety of colors. They also have a spray paint that is specifically for metal. Good luck, and I am going to try and find some of those!

    I love them they way the look in the picture. Rustic, rough and natural. Love with greenery. Again, a natural look.

    They are very pretty. How about chalk paint and then distress them. Play up the rustic look
