Fast forward 5 years and 2 more kids, our couch has seen better days...
|For the record, Gracie doesn't mind the flaking leather...|
For the top/back part of the chair, we simply tucked the fabric under the pillow and hot glued the fabric behind. We decided to only recover one piece of the sectional so we could run some stress tests to see how the fabric holds up (or on as the case may be).
I like the way it turned out and I will be very happy not to have to vacuum up any more leather flakes!
