I’m surprised Iron Thrones don’t exist in everyone’s living room by now. However, ‘Game of Thrones‘ fans, you are in luck because the people over at Instructubles put together a handy-dandy DIY guide on how to make your own Iron Throne.
Step 1: Get a regular old chair
Don’t worry. This chair will be come Iron Throne-y before you know it! The team at Instructibles found a plastic Adirondack chair that you can find at hardware stores.
Step 2: Create a platform for your chair.
The team used 2×4 lumber and 1/2” plywood at the top. 2X4s and 2X2s were added as legs for the platform.
Step 3: Frame Your Chair with Yardsticks
Yardsticks- who would’ve thunk! Screw in the yardsticks around the chair.
Step 4: Layer the First Round of Swords
The team used pink foam insulation (hopefully not with asbestos) to create the swords.
Step 5: Add More Swords
The team used craft foam for the swords on the actual seat of chair, so when you’re pretending you’re Joffrey you can be more comfortable.
Step 6: Add Even More Swords
There can never be enough swords!
Step 7: Paint It
Be sure to wait until the paint dries before you have a seat!
See? It’s simple! Actually, it took the team at Instructibles over 3 weeks to make, but they imagine you could do it in about a week and a half.
If you decide to take this project on, we’d love to see your finished results, so post them in the comments section below!
