Painting kitchen chairs?

Should we sand down some wooden kitchen chairs that have a natural finish before repainting them?

My wife and I just acquired some used kitchen chairs. They're pretty standard- a light wood with a natural finish on it. Look just like these
(Amazon.com). They're pretty cheap, and not in the best of shape, so we would like to paint them.
Two questions- Should we sand off the finish before painting them? Also, what kind of paint would you suggest using? I've read that oil based paint can actually give a better finish. Is this true?
