Farmhouse style?

I'm dreaming of a simple farmhouse style dining room/breakfeast nook...
So when I came over these chairs at the lokal goodwill I thought I could make them work.

The problem is now they remind me of a german Sauerkraut and Bratwurst restaurant... 
they have this shiny golden brown finish:

If they looked more like that, I would be really happy with them:

You know what I mean? Any idea what I can do to make them more look like that?

Anyway they are super sturdy, and that's what we need with four boy's in our family ;),
and I was more than ready to throw out the cheap IKEA chairs which started to get really beaten up.

Another option is to paint them gray and pair them with my scandinavian bench:
