DIY projects are becoming pretty popular, because people are looking for new ways to express what they are about. Some of the best DIY projects are people doing something related to a comic book, movie or TV series.
This guy created his own project out of his fandom of HBO’s Game of Thrones. He turned his coffee table into a full on GOT map.
It started as a regular coffee table.
It took a lot of re-staining and refinishing of the table. Then a pallet was used as a lower level for the table.
DVD cases were used to hold the project together. A little janky.
A highly detailed map of Westeros was printed and laid across the table. The edges of the paper map were then slightly burnt to give it an old look.
Using a sealant to remove air bubbles is very important. No one want air bubbles on their map.
Use rustic nail heads on the outside to make it look medieval.
Epoxy resin was then used to both seal the map and nail heads, as well as give it that great shine.
The handles are a nice touch.
Westeros can then be used for a game of strategy. This is freaking awesome!
