For a while I’ve wanted to make my own mirror and decided to integrate it into a hallway notice board next to the front door.
One of my aims was to try and keep the frame quite low profile, I re-purposed my old Sony Vaio laptop LCD. Set about designing and making the frame.
I decided to make the frame out of Oak.
The software side of things was nice and simple, good to learn some programming along the way to personalise. Just running a few modules at the moment. Will add some more on a timed schedule.
I like the MMM-Todoist Module, I use that to send my mirror messages from wherever I am as reminders.
Here is the finished Mirror
On the left the is the mirror. I made this myself with glass and mirror vinyl. on the right is a matt grey vinyl on glass with a metal sheet behind for use with the wooden magnets I made to match the frame. I can use liquid chalk markers for notes on the glass.
Overusing the masking tape a little.
Next job is to hang it on the wall and hide the wires powering the mirror.
