Stadium seating for ten or more.
Mid-century modern benches.
Solid oak tops with wrought iron legs.
Atomic Age legs.
We will need the Way Back Machine to find more of these.
I had wanted one like these on the first weekend of the estate sale, but unfortunately the bench in the carport was sold.
Went back two weeks later and stuff had been dragged out of the storage room.
Back behind a vintage car, I spied the legs.
Lying on their tops with their legs in the air, I guess no one had seen what they were.
But I knew.
Under the fertilizer, the degreasing agent, the giant spider webs and eggs, not ONE but TWO.
The guy in charge gave me a price.
I accepted immediately.
It took two of them to pull them from behind the car.
They even loaded them into my truck which was already full.
Thank goodness for a heavy duty tailgate...
and my lovely 1996 Blazer!
Each was washed and scrubbed several times.
Howard's Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax.
I did not sand down the distressed marks from years of use.
The wrought iron legs were lightly sanded to remove some rust and then waxed with Minwax.
Chucks and I drove them over to Riverfront Antique Mall where they sit right outside the front door.
The first person to see them thought they were German beer garden benches.
And they do resemble them.
The question for you is:
Did they come from a stadium?
No, the name is just what they are called around here.
One is four feet in length, and the other about eight feet.
Both bargain priced.
Just in case you need stadium seating for ten or more.
