How's this grab you? Never in all of staple setting days have I thought of converting a galvanized steel tub into a button tufted ottoman. Kudos to Katie of ReCreate for her Way Out implementation of sheer cleverness. That's not all....
How about illustrating your newly obtained upholstery skills by turning a flea market suitcase into a charming little chair or settee? It looks fairly straightforward. I can envision a tricked out version of this in a child's room.
Hello Blue. (I think this is my sister's college suitcase.) But upholstered goods aren't the only designs in Katie's stash. She's pretty much a master at making furnishings out of anything she finds. And from the looks of things, she's got quite a fan club buying up her handmade goods. See more of her creative repurposing right here.

I can't decide if it looks interesting enough make, or if it just looks like a very short upholstered pad in a suitcase. By the looks of how many of these she's already sold, , mastermind behind ReCreate has come up with a winner. Take a look at her tub ottomans.
