The transformation The suzani-inspired upholstery and bold orange paint finish turn this boring brown table into a fabulous foyer perch.
Tackle this project in one of three ways, according to your time, budget and skill level.
1 Do the painting and upholstery yourself.
2 Paint the piece yourself but have a pro handle the upholstery. (That's what I chose to do, picking the fabric I wanted -- Suzani in Sun from Invu Drapery Co.)
3 Take it to an upholsterer who can handle painting and upholstery. He or she can even present you with fabric options if you don’t have time to make it to a fabric store.
