Transformation . . . a quick but effective one

My lovely comfy chair has needed a transformation for a long time. I'd taped material over it when I realised that I'd be unable to re-upholster it without a taking it apart and possibly using a staple gun. Finally I took action and it went from this:

once I'd taken the back and seat apart and tried some experimental stapling onto plastic and used masking tape where the staples just would not penetrate!

My assistant enjoyed a spin.
