Like several people around the country, I host my family and friends for a big SuperBowl party each year. Being a die-hard Patriots fan, we have recently been blessed with cheering for the home team more often than not. But regardless of the teams in the big game, we always have a party.
As the event has grown, so had our party attendance. What started with 9 or 10 people has grown to over 20 most years. Trying to fit everybody into the living room has been a challenge lately. This year, I came up with a novel idea to add more seats. I would add some tiered ‘Stadium Seating’ in my living room with a few cinder blocks (10) and a piece of plywood (5/8 inch)
To start with, I moved my couch forward away from the wall to give me at least 4 feet of working space.
I laid down the 10 cinder blocks in order to support the plywood stage sufficiently.
Once the base was laid properly, I added the 5/8 inch plywood over, bracing it against the wall.
I moved the couch back so it rested against the plywood to help secure it in place. Finally, I put 4 chairs up on the platform to add the additional seating.
I am looking forward to all of my guests, and now we can all sit comfortably in the living room for the SuperBowl!
