A live and learn moment. When I covered the parcel shelf I trimmed the leather flush with the fiber board backing when I had thought originally of rolling the leather over the edge. The front and back edge isn't an issue as it can't be seen, but the right and left sides have a gap and you can see where the leather was trimmed. I am not happy with this, but not enough to recover another shelf. I am thinking some of that rubber trim that the sell that you put along the edge of car doors painted the same camel color just might take up the gap AND make it look more "finished.

If anyone does this themselves I recommend rolling the leather at least on the ends.
