Hi Loved your Video! I was wondering how to recover 2 special "vintage"
chairs that have wood frames and just a bit of fabric tacked down with what
looks like a long strip of brass grommets or a certain kind of tack
decorator-ish tape I don't know what to call it! and I have seen other
videos on decorator tacking however none look anything like what I have, so
I'm wondering if you do..Thanks so much I'm just a Mom wondering how to "do
it myself"
