Those chairs are amazing! I'd leave them as is but would definitely have the cushions recovered or replaced. Maybe a solid white or cream cotton canvas on the cushions. I'd also maybe only use the seat cushion and leave the back open - looks like the back of the chair has a really pretty design.
Maybe something like this image I found on Pottery Barn’s website…

Oh how fun! I could see them painted glossy white with a colorful geometric such as a Caitlin Wilson fabric. On the other hand I could see them as is with a suzani or ikat fabric for that more rustic eclectic look.I love a bold geometric pillow. Maybe something like this…

I'd definitely spray paint them! Maybe a bright green, yellow or hot pink in a semigloss! Do you sew? Taupe or white cushions with bright piping would be gorgeous!
I also asked Amy Whited. Amy lives in Durham, NC and runs Yellow Hammer Design Shop where she sells beautiful furniture and accessories she's found and refurbished. Check out her dining room that was featured in This Old House magazine.

So I would paint them in Valspar's Hint of Mint which could be mixed in a glossy porch and floor paint so they are outside durable. And then I would suggest just ditching the cushions for a pair of square throw pillows (depending on the condition of the seats underneath. I love this Richloom fabric and it's a steal for $8.98 a yard, which will make you 2 pillows. Done and done.
Oh decisions, decisions! What’s your' favorite look for these ReStore chairs?
