I just reupholstered both the sofas and went thru the same hog ring disaster. I went back and reinforced the edging with web tape, inserted a heavy gauge wire in the seam and then laced the fabric to the frame. It was tedious...but well worth it, they look fabulous. I found nice foam cheap on amazon, and upholstery velvet on newtoto.com

Aluminum Backsplash

That looks great. We got some a couple of weeks ago but haven't found time to install it yet. The PO put a picture behind the cooktop and stuck it to the wall with a hot glue gun. After we had the trailer a few weeks it started coming loose and peeled the vinyl "wallpaper" off the substrate in several spots along the top and bottom of the picture. I'm going to remove the vinyl over most of the area behind the stove and up to the vent to ensure that the tile sticks to something solid. Since it is already damaged, a little more won't hurt.

Hog Rings

I got a hog ring tool and rings at my local Ace hardware store. It may help to live in an area with some agricultural interests.

I hate hog rings! I usually install metal eyelets and lace the covers on. Makes it easy to adjust and remove if needed.

Should have ask on the forums. Several ideas could have worked easier than what I did. Live and learn.
