Unfortunately the LCD is, to put it politely, a rainbow full of stuffed. However apart from that it is fine, backlights still good, driver circuitry, power supply etc all still good.
I guess I could look out for another Viewsonic 2235WM with a good LCD but some other fault and make a good one out of the two, but with LCD's so cheap these days it hardly seems worth it, or particularly likely.
Can anybody think of something more interesting I could use the remains for.

Make a sort of geek side table out of it !
A glass panel for the top and add some sort of leg[s] for it.

Maybe a picture frame?

Make it into a mirror.... use it as the frame ! Potentially wall mount it with a vesa swing mount... cool for the bathroom?

+1 Geek Guy. If the monitor has a flexible stand that allows it to be raised higher and faced upward, then 'pose' it as a side table and coat it with a few layers of clear resin. this will make it waterproof (easy to clean and bug free) and it will hold the shape.
Extra points if you can get the backlight to power up so that the side table now also supplies 'ambient lighting'.
