RIBBA Digital Photo Frame

RIBBA Digital Photo Frame

Materials: RIBBA photo frame, old digital photo frame, screwdriver, sticky tape

Description: I had an old, ugly digital photo frame lying around – It surely wasn’t cheap and had been given to me as a present. But it was just too ugly to have it in my living room. Time to change that.

- Rip out the inner display and controllers from the digital frame

- use some sticky tape to place it on the RIBBA passepartout

- throw everything into the RIBBA frame

- Done

It’s as easy as this and it just looks so much better now.

Do NOT forget to clean the frame’s glass before assembling everything ;)

    I forgot to take photos from the back … Just use some thick paper or the original RIBBA inlay an cut little holes in it if you have buttons on the back of the controller board – that’s what I did. Also, if your display doesn’t fit the passepartout, you can easily just cut some thick white paper and use that.
