Wink My Valley recovered with 760 Simonis - 06-18-2013, 09:36 AM

I recovered my Valley with 760 Simonis using the glue down method for the rails. I've done at least 50 tables in my life and its the 1st time I try gluing the rails instead of stapling. It certainly was easier to glue however I'm not sold on the idea of the sidepocket flap. I'm also not certain the people I recover for are going to like the flap verses the old method of just stretching the cloth super tight around the side pocket cushion facing. Any and all input is appreciated. Thanks !!

I prefer a fold in the side pocket. I use Glens method for the side pockets and I mist a little spray glue to hold everything flat.
