This nightstand was a freebie someone had obviously given up on and the chair was a purchase I made thinking I would pop the seat off, paint and reupholster.  To my surprise the oil cloth cover had some batting underneath and this was a solid oak chair.  Amazing how white paint brings new life to furniture!
