DIY Computer Case using Ikea Ribba Picture Frames

Last weekend, I made a trip to Edmonton to go shopping at Ikea. While I was there, I picked up a couple of picture frames from their Ribba line to make a computer case that I can show off on my wall.

As soon as I got home, I started working on this project. I started by taking the frames apart. I then mounted the motherboard and hard drive to the thick, cardboard backing. After that, I put some blue LEDs in to give a cool glowing effect. But since the motherboard was too thick to mount in just one picture frame, I joined two frames together using a couple of hinges. I think the final product turned out great! Here are some pics:
