Dear AT,

I found this chair at an estate sale.

The cushions were horrible so they got tossed.

It needs a general cleaning and the straps need replacing.

What I'm wondering about is, can I sand it and re-stain it?

It doesn't seem to be solid wood, but a veneer.

It has some chips here and there and some paint markings on it as if it bumped into walls. Thanks! Jen
