Are the chairs black? Its hard to tell. Where are you planning on using them? I agree they need new cushions. Something zebra if it goes with your decor. Hard to tell without seeing context.

They are dark Brown. The context for now is a cow rug (black/white) and a white center table. I also have an antique sofa with the dame fabric that one is light brown (wood).

The wood looks so nice I don't think I would change it. Just find a nice coordinating fabric. If you were to change the wood, what color were you thinking? I am not very informed on antiques but they look to be original.

I am not sure! Is that i have a round dinning table and I Want to paint it off white so i dont know if it would look good the white dinning table with the chairs and this chairs in the living room with the antique sofa all brown? I was thinking putting gray fabric in all dinning chairs and living room sofa and chairs put different gray fabric maybe one stripes and the other plain gray.

I would not paint them if you are not sure if they are true antiques or not. Reupholstery is probably okay (but again if those are real Greek Revival chairs then I'd hold off on that until they were appraised). My guess is they are reproductions though, in which case you might have more leeway to do what you please.
