So, my lazy butt, feet dragging self has come to the conclusion that gluing now isn't happening in these cooler temps here in Chicago. SO for now, I will be tacking it.

So last night, I was parusing the upholstry tacks at the store and these things are like a half inch long. Is that what you guys are using? Wouldn't a simple flat head thumb tack work?

Using half inch long tacks as well and purchased mainly for the flush seat, but am relativity sure a shorter tack would work just fine.

Ok, wasn't sure if there was a reason for needing something that long. I know, that's what she said... :D

Ok, I did them this weekend, but found a few places I still have to do. I also found where the previous owner used straight pins (Like you get out of a new dress shirt after you take it out of the wrapper), along the rubber mouldings and such.

Anyway, my beef is, NO ONE, not Menards, Home Depot, Meijer, Wally-World, etc, had BLACK (or a dark colored) upholstrey pin... Seriously!

So what I ended up doing... I bought the brass/nickel colored ones, then broke out the Testers flat black model paint. Worked like a charm.

Now I have to do a few more.

That is what I did, Flat Black spray pain. Set the ones that I need on a piece of cardboard and spray on it. At least keep from the sky falling ;)
