So you put up a new painting in the living room, and it looks beautiful. It stays for a few weeks, and you get bored with it and want a new one. But after the first, you're broke! Well, this thing is as many paintings as you wish all at once, and it's not a collage or mosaic. Nay, it's a SLIDESHOW!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Some Stuffs
() A spare computer you don't mind losing
() A wall
() A drill
() 2 screws
() 2 wall brackets
() Sheet metal
Step 2: Get Your Paintings
Find all of your paintings that you wish to put up and save them to a folder.
Step 3: Some Quick Adjustments
Adjust your photos using Picasa to match your screen size (mine was 1024x1068)
Step 4: Make a Space in the Wall
If your wall is like mine, you have many hollow spaces. Use a stud finder to find a hollow space in the wall, and drill about 3 feet from the floor below where you would like to hang the paintings.
Step 5: Place CPU and Feed Wire
Well, the title says it all.
Feed the wire DOWN!!!!!!!!! Then reach in with an Allen wrench and take the end out.
MAKE SURE THE OTHER END IS STILL OUT!!!!!!!!
Step 6: Final Steps
Plug the monitour cable into the monitor and use the screws to prop up the monitor.
Step 7: Now...
Set the PC to not go into screensaver (that can be a real pain).
Use Picasa again to start the slideshow, and leave!
The paintings will automatically cycle.
Step 8: At Last!
