Place the mattress on the seating first, spraying glue between the mattress and seating. Lay your textile over, wrap it under the edge and start stapling. Be careful around the edges to get a smooth edge.
When done with the seating, do the same with the back.
The rest of the second chair I took apart and kept in case I needed some parts for later mods on the 3-seater 🙂
