Staples out - check.
My first attempt didn't go so well. I was a little too conservative in my cutting. Luckily for me it was too small for the seat but plenty big enough for the back so I didn't waste any.
Lesson. Just put the fabric in place and make sure it is big enough before you start stapling it.
Then we hit a tiny bump. There is a safety on this staple gun where you have to have it flush against the surface or it won't release. That's great for safety but crappy when you need to get in little cracks and crevices on the back side of a chair. Tim pretty much gave up and I continued to tinker with it. I got in a rhythm and it started to work! I just had to staple the fabric back a bit farther than we had originally planned. Tim, not wanting to be out-smarted by a girl, came back over and took the reins. He really did end up being the master stapler.
My office is well on it's way to being hip and updated.
