I actually like the worn patina of your farmhouse table. You might consider just painting the ladderback chairs in a color to coordinate with your decor.

I agree. There are some things that should look polished and perfect, but a farmhouse table isn't one of them. (I would scuff it up even more!). You could paint the chairs, like michigammemom suggests, and also paint the table legs. Perhaps get some really comfy chair pads.

Keep the table the same color but paint the chairs a color that goes with your kitchen.

One more vote for keeping table same color, but painting chairs! If you stain the table and add a high gloss it will have a great reflective shine which will brighten up the area.

What about painting the table top a cream or even something fun like a teal or lilac if you really want to add some color?

My preference is to have chairs darker than table, if not the same color. My inclination is to recommend you bring the table and chais back to their original luster but knowing what the other finishes are in the room, then there may be merit in olldbobbis post.

I would get an area rug in a bright pattern and change the chair cushions to something that blends with it in a brighter color. The wood of the chairs is beautiful so I would decorate around it. You can add a table runner too to lighten up the table in something that is washable or a lazy susan to place bright decorative and useable things like salt and pepper and napkin holder. Another idea would be to place a colorful fabric on the table and have a piece of unbreakable glass on top- you could get this custom cut for you at any window supply. Then you can change the fabric when you want. Glass is as easy to clean as anyother surface - vinegar and water in a spray bottle and use a squeegee to remove and prevent streaks.
