Good Questions: Upholstering a Mission-style Coffee Table?

Hello Apartment Therapy — I picked up this mission-style table at a garage sale for $5. I'm in the process of cleaning it up and painting. It will probably end up a oatmeal-y beige or a dove grey. Here is my question: I love the look of ottoman coffee tables. I was thinking of upholstering the top of this one with some foam and fabric, but I am worried it will look odd with the mission-style sides. Anyone have suggestions? I can't find any photos of what this might look like. Thanks!
