Just had a little time to test my latest idea. I took an IKEA picture frame, mirrored car tint and the Weather station, put everything together and it works! It only took about 30 minutes… Next time I’ll have to be more careful with the mirror tint, this thing scratches easily. But in the linked tint you get about 3 meters you’ll have enough material to get it perfect!
Quick & Dirty Instructions
Take the frame apart and clean the glass
Cut the tint to the rough size of the glass
Spray the glass with a mix of soap and warm water
Use a tape to separate tint from support layer
Carefully place tint with the glueing side on the glas
Use the squeegee to get rid of bubbles
Cut the extra tint around the glas
Cut a whole for the OLED display connectors in the back of the frame (see picture below)
WeatherStation with OLED display from Squix Shop. Or buy ESP8266 (NodeMCU) and SSD1306 Oled Display separately form Banggood
For the Magic Mirror you just need a Picture Frame, Mirrored Car Tint
and the WeatherStation Kit which you can order for USD 24.50 here
