I finally, was able to get my sewing chair completely apart to recover it. I’ve tried on several occasions and just ended up tucking and gluing. Needless to say, they never stayed on well. Since I had the entire chair apart I also spray painted the plastic parts. I just love the new pink fabric which has mint green, yellow, and brown that match my sewing studio walls.
I also recovered a cork-board and my sewing stool.
