So today the clamps came off and the sanding has begun. It's going to be an awfully cute chair ;)
The bedside table below was a roadside find also and the top got a good sanding as well. Still debating it it's worth trying to save. It has the cutest shape and it would give me a chance to try and make a shelf to replace the missing top drawer. :). It's not solid wood and had had a rough life.
