Here is a pretty good look at the new covering going over the old. This is a top cap for one side of the dinette. We had plenty of material so some was used to cover the inside of the magazine rack. The type of material we used is smoother than the wood so things go in and out easier. It is also quieter if you are a late night reader and he isn't.
The outside of the rack was the most tedious part of this project. The ruffles are made by putting elastic on the material edge in its "stretched" position. Went it goes over the board it pleats. She pinned the new material to the old in the stretched position. The old elastic proved adequate. Once we install the magazine rack the job is done. We both have a lot of satisfaction in the job she has done. I did get to bolt the stuff on and off and sometimes she let me use the staple gun. Covering over the old material works great. Try it.
