Not content to sit in merely any chair, one intrepid Game of Thrones fan has built his own Iron Throne — and was nice enough to break down the process so you can, too.
I mean, who hasn’t wondered what it’d be like to sit on that glorious, sword-filled throne and look out over your own kingdom (or rec room)? All you need is a plastic chair, foam, some simple construction materials and paint — plus about three weeks of free time — and voila, an Iron Throne!
Plus you won’t have to deal with that lingering threat of potential assassination, so that’s good.
A user over at Instructables has put together a stellar guide explaining the ins and out of the construction process, which is fairly simple (but very time-consuming). Basically, you start with a plastic chair, frame up the swords with yardsticks, cut out the rest of the swords with foam, use straps to fill in the gaps — then get to painting.
