Follow these 7 easy steps to make your own Iron Throne and rule Westeros

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.

Challenge accepted.
