If it has a machine bolt you can get a new threaded insert and go in deeper. Many inserts used today only hold about 3/8" max and tears out. A 5/16" Allen wrench will set most deeper and your bolt will still fit.
If it is a wood screw or lag bolt(looks like a wood screw) you will need to fill with toothpicks and wood glue before attempting to anchor. If you can go a longer screw to get past the old area it will secure it twice as good.

You can fill the hole with a good wood filler, let it dry and then rerun the screw. Be sure you use good filler like elmers max and fill the hole completely.

Just bought some dining room chairs and we can't see how to attach the cushions! Is there a secret way of doing it?


By cushions if you mean the seat then all it needs is a few wood screws to fasten to the base. if there is no hole for screws in the base frame then you could fix these with angle brackets.

How to repair henredon upholstered chair


This is one of two things which I am guessing that this is a dowel and glue problem. Where it is separting causing the loose feel wilh have to be pulled apart, sanded, new dowel put in , glued and clamped. If these are screwed together than you will have to expose the heads of the screws, they will be covered with wood filler and then use a wood filler in that hole afer the screw is removed and put a screw back the same pllace once dried. The screw scenario means that all the use has caused the screw to loosen its hold.

What are the advantages of wood high chairs?


Wooden high chairs are often more sturdy than plastic ones. They also don't break as easily. It's really hard for even a very destructive child to do much damage to a thick-legged wooden high chair.
I also think wooden high chairs just look so much nicer than the plastic ones and you don't' stick out against the decor of your kitchen.

We have a very small dining room space, but would still like to put a dining room table and chair set there. Can anyone suggest the best way to furnish a small space like this?


The best dining room table shape for a room with limited space is a round table. You should look into finding one with an extension leaf if you have enough space to open it. Try looking for a table where you can fit more people around it by purchasing one with a pedestal base. This leaves more room for your guests legs without the legs of the table getting in the way.
