Introduction: Mirror From Broken LCD Monitor
If you have an LCD with a giant crack running through it, make a mirror instead of throwing it away. The crack is nearly invisible after the operation, see picture.
This is really easy, and just amounts to tearing apart your screen, flipping over the reflective part, and putting it back together.
Actually, the biggest challenge was being a little creative about hanging it.
You'll need a little computer screwdriver and some scissors, plus whatever you plan to use to hang it. I'll leave the hanging to your own devices.

Step 1: Disassemble
Ok, ripping apart. Take your little screw driver and just take it all apart. I saved a small piece of metal to use to hang the mirror. Most of the frame can go away.
The big white strip (green on the other side, pictured) that says "do not touch" should be cut off with scissors.
Step 2: Reassemble
The LCD has several layers. Find the shiny part and make it point outwards, the better to see your beautiful face with!
Now screw it back together in a few places so the frame holds all the guts in. For ease, try to attach at least one piece that can be used to hang it, like pictured. These should have come off the frame.
Step 3: Hang It Up!
You're done. Find a nice place to hang it. If you hang it sideways, as pictured, you will want to put a screw on the opposite edge, away from our mounts, to hold the thing to the wall.
If your monitor is like mine, you'll have a nice shiny frame around your nice shiny mirror!
Little cable was kept for style purposes.
