Reparing arm of dining room chair
I am working on a set of dining room chairs preparing them to be reupholstered.
I am toning the color with Behlen Jet spray.
While working on an arm chair, I noticed one of the arms is loose. The arm had been repaired previously.
I looked closer and noticed on the front and side of the arm where it joins the seat are 2 recessed finishing nails.
What would be the best way to repair?
I am told the chairs are from the 1950's.
The seat will cover about an inch of the arm to the inside so a repair could be made there and cosmetically covered.
Here are some photos:

Thanks in advance!
