First Build.



  • Finished my first Magic Mirror build this weekend.
    My build:

    Raspberry Pi 3B
    Older Dell monitor that I had in storage
    Ikea Edsbruk 19 ¾x27 ½ frame

    I built a support frame using 1x2inch boards and attached that to the back of the Ikea frame with 1 inch corner brackets

    I initially tried to use mirror film on the Ikea plexiglass but that was a giant fail so I ended up buying a two way mirror plexiglass sheet from Canal Plastics in NYC.

    Initial programming

    Frame-- I cleaned up the wiring with some zip ties and brackets before securing the support frame to the Ikea frame permanently.

    Final setup… with dog.
