I had an old monitor lying around the house and decided I would make a 2nd digital picture frame for downstairs. I used another Raspberry Pi and configured it the same as my previous digital picture frame and mounted the LCD to the wall. It is very nice to have and have since changed it to display my security cameras so I can see who it at my door, or in my yard without leaving the basement. ๐Ÿ™‚ I created a script where I can easily change between the two with my iPad, but it mostly stays on my security cameras.

I bought some Oak casing and created a simple picture frame to hide some of the LCD bezel. I then used some Oak plywood left over from a couple of book cases I am currently working on to wrap the sides and bottom to complete the look. Very happy with the way it turned out.
