Rivets - how to remove 2-piece type

Attempting to refinish/repair patio furniture. Director Chair styly. folding leg support hinges were attached with rivets. Some hinges broken; all are rusty and need to be replaced. HOW do I get those rivets out. "easily" ? Only have hand tools at my disposal.

Generally you would drill them out but if you can wedge a hacksaw blade between the hinge and frame you might be able to cut it.That said it's unclear that you'd get the whole rivet out that way.Once cut you could go from there.Possibly you could push the rest of the rivet in with a punch.The chairs are metal frame?How do you plan to reattach the hinges?
