Stadium Seats

My husband just moved into a new office at work, so he wanted to find some unique chairs that could be used by guests. Since he works in the athletic world, he decided that stadium seats would be a perfect fit. Many of the ones he found online were way too expensive, so of course Craigslist came to the rescue. He landed on these chairs that are being stored at a church in the Ozarks. So we hopped in the car for a Sunday road trip and were so impressed, we bought some for our house too! Even a friend of ours wanted some for his office, so we picked up a couple for him as well.

These guys were originally used at Southwest Baptist University in Springfield. The current owner got the entire gym-full when his brother-in-law needed some new bleachers for the Christian school he runs. In addition to the bleachers, they got gym flooring, stadium seats, and more. It’s all in beautiful condition!

They come as single chairs, double sets, and triple sets. We bought two singles to go in our basement, one double set for our friend’s office, and the triple set will go in my hubby’s office. They were $25 per seat. Such a deal! The cobwebs and spiders hitched a ride as well.

Here they are when we got them home – just needed a little washing.

My hubby used a little wood cleaner and then polish to shine them up.

Here they are, all cleaned up – ready to go to the office! The lines on the side are so great. I love the color of the wood too. They have a few scratches, but we all get more lines as we age, don’t we? Just adds character.

We put the single chairs on either side of our TV in our basement.

Great addition to the man cave. The best part is that my husband absolutely loves them, which made the whole trip so fun. Do you love stadium seats as much as we do?
