    Use upholstery tacks or if you use Daly headed tacks you can glue trim over the top if u don’t want them to show

      Thanks. I thought of tacks or staple gun. Good suggestion. Glued trim will finish it nicely. Thanks again.

    It's gotta be removable somehow. How was it put in there? Really, I'm not trying to be a smarty but I see a frame, some 'stuffing' and it had to have been mounted there when it was built.

    You would do it the same way I upholstered the wooden headboard. First I laid it flat. I then padded it with a thin sheet of foam, quilt batting, muslim and then my fabric. I stapled these to the inside edge of the headboard. Over that I applied gimp. Probably used Elmers glue, but glue gun or other glue would also work. This is not a difficult job.

    it looks pasted in or glued.

    of I cut or slice it out I'm concerned I'll chip the frame.

    I agree with Lynn. It had to be inserted in the frame somehow and glue would not hold it in place. Check the back for some removable trim or molding. That's usually how chair backs are mounted.

  • I Have just finished doing one of these style chairs today and my back was glued into a small groove that was routered out. I personally would not try and remove. For this style of furniture you staple the fabric on to the chair and cover the staples with Gimp but dont make the mistake i did and cut the fabric close to the staples it just pulls away when used. Fold a 1cm lip and staple. Hope that make sense.
