Trashed Ottoman to Treasure

I wanted an upholstered ottoman and wouldn't spend lots of $$$$ for it. I bought this ottoman on Craigslist for $10.  I know- I spent too much for it.  I guess this is what 4 cats can do to a piece of furniture!  However, it is really solid and there's also storage.  I'm always on the lookout for pieces that can do double duty.  I LOVE getting a bargain, especially one I can get creative with.  Here's the before-

I have yards of this linen-fabric is an addiction for me-I can't help it.  Anyway, a couple of hours work and fabric and trim I had on hand and
My new-to-me $10 ottoman.  Here's what it looks like in it's new home.
