137 staples and a really thin sponge pad underneath the cover, with three staples.

Man did this post bring back memories! As a kid, my mother had a drapes and reupholstery business. As a kid, I was easily aged 9-15 or so when I helped tear down the furniture. I remember the thousands of staples in everything! I became really handy with a wooden mallet, staple puller, and needle nose pliers.

Thanks for the memories!

Whoever did the original must have been paid by the number of staples they used. On the upside, it probably would hang with magnets!��

Good job on the new fabric!

My dad did the upholstery business thing for a while, and I was in the same age range you were. I became VERY adept at getting those staples out. The boogers were those fancy brass headed tack things. Couldn't get hold of them and when I did they broke off.
Oh, well. Got what I could and hammered the rest into the frame.
