Help! My dog chewed up my new chair!?
My new puppy chewed a large measure 1 inch wide fabric in the back, down my leather recliner rocker expensive. The dog is older and he knows that improving chewing furniture, but I find myself with a small area if not ragged on my chair like new.
Excessive dog chewing is one of the biggest complaints of most dog owners.
Puppies are notorious chewing machines.
The worst part is no improvement, you will end up having a fully developed dog that can really destroy anything left unattended.

Upholding his end
He says they are perfectly fine scissors for use around the house. He has more demanding needs when it comes to scissors, as he is the owner for “a gazillion years” of Demanche Upholstery. The scissors Demanche uses need a razor edge for cutting through multiple layers of fabric, vinyl or leather. Those that have lost their bite find their way to the public.
His tools of the trade include scissors, electric foam cutters, a vintage Singer sewing machine, a glue bottle with a spray nozzle, a steamer with a long cord, pliers, screwdrivers and other implements including a slender, brass-headed hammer with a magnet embedded in the recessed tip. He has owned the hammer since the 1960s.
Demanche, a Vietnam-era veteran of the Army, is old school when it comes to using small metal tacks to secure a piece of fabric onto the frame of a chair undergoing an upholstery job. He deftly pops a handful of the tacks into his mouth. He positions the pointy cluster of perhaps 20 or more tacks by rolling them with his tongue into an orderly line. Then, he touches the hammer to his lips and allows one tack to adhere to the magnet on the end of the hammer. A smooth move it is from lips to hammer to a light tap that drives the tack into the chair frame.
The Nursery: Details
A few crafty projects went into the nursery decor, one of them being the vintage children's armoire makeover. This was a piece that was originally my mom's as a child, then she used it for me, and since then several other women in our family have used it for their babies. It has been painted several times and although it was a nice white I decided to paint it Annie Sloane's Duck Egg Blue for a nice pop of color in the room. Some frames we had on hand or were already with the original photos, some we bought and painted from thrift stores, and a few I found for great deals at HomeGoods. We were able to choose the upholstery we wanted from a wide variety of fabrics from the manufacturer, and I chose this chocolate brown and white toille. I've always love toille in a nursery and I think the chocolate brown works well for either gender and as more of a neutral for any space. The chair was purchased at a 10% discount at a wonderful local baby store called Green Pea Baby. I'm sure we will have a few extra things set up in this room once the babies come that are not currently pictured here, such as a cool mist humidifier that we already had on hand, baby monitors, a bobby pillow, and the diaper pail that we... I'm really hoping to use this nursery as much as possible for their sleep, nursing, and even play time, and I think it will work out well especially since our bedroom adjoins the nursery directly through a side door and since it will be so close...
