Giving a 1970s Vega 542 portable TV a new life displaying digital photos.
Step 1: Reusing and Recycling
This old Russian TV had been sitting around the workshop for a while, and it was time to do something with it! I'd been waiting for a cheap 7" flat screen tv to cross my path so I could convert it, but decided instead on a digital photo frame.
The digital photo frame was sourced from Gumtree and cost me £4, though I've bought them cheaper since then for other projects.
I had the idea that if I built the frame into the TV it could sit decoratively on my desk showing a slideshow of TV-related images to match its own era.
