DIY: Moving Pictures on Display

Spruce up things by using an old TV to match your decor by encasing it in an oversized photo/painting frame. Move it from the living room to a wall in another room where you wished you had a TV to act as a digital, scrolling photo frame. You can likely find a large enough frame at your favorite vintage store or an estate sale. We recommend seeking out one that is thicker in case you need to modify it to fit your particular TV.
