My goddaughter is turning two and her and her twin sister are just starting potty training. I decided to step up the game by making this game of thrones potty throne, a throne fit for a princess.

The material is quite simple to gather and i could make this in a single morning - not counting the paint dry out night.

Step 1: Material

The base of this throne is an Ikea LOCKIG potty. It has both the avantages of having a long back and a removable seat (which is quite mandatory...)

The swords are made from a simple yoga/gym natte. The cheaper, the better. I found mine for less than 3 euros at the local sport center

Material :

  • potty
  • gym natte
  • black metal paint and primer
  • sand paper (rough and fine grain)
  • very sharp cutting knife (I used my japanese santoku)
  • neoprene glue

Step 2: The Paint Job

First I had to sand off the potty. The paint would not stay on it otherwise.

I used primer on top of that and finally painted it black (listening to the stones).

I used paint bombs I found at the local shop for 6€ each.

Step 3: Mighty Swords

The swords were cut in a simple shape from a 10mm yoga mat.

I trimmed the edges with the knife trying to remain quite level all the way.

I used a blowtorch to lightly burn the edges of the sword. This gave them a rough look and stiffed them a bit

Step 4: Dragon Forging

If you dont have a dragon around, you'll have to find another way to stick all those blades together.

I used neoprene to glue them on the potty.

I used a bit of silver paint to add a shiny touch to the tip of the blades, but this is really not mandatory. (I sprayed the paint in the bottle cap and used a brush to lightly color the blades)

I didn't want to put blades all the way around because since this potty is for girls (yes...) I thought that blades all around would be a bit overkill. fell free to go crazy with them if you want :)
