We did the chair's skirt last to cover the bottom edges of all the other pieces. You can do the skirt as one long piece wrapped all the way around or do separate pieces on each side of the chair.
When all the pieces are in place and are glued down, use the hammer to insert the upholstery nail heads through the fabric and into the chair's framing. All chairs vary, on some you can feel the framing in the arms, others the on the back and some around the edges.
The chair will need to be stitched together at the many of the seams to hold fabric in place. The adhesive is more of a temporary solution to get the pieces in their exact spots. The stitching will give it a rustic chic look.
