This Photo Frame MOC is an alternate build of LEGO® official set 21319 FRIENDS – Central Perk. The main features of the set have been retained but under what you’ve seen the bricks used have been shuffled a lot in order to obtain enough bricks to build another feature and achieve “alternative”, i.e., no extra part needed! Of course, if you have other bricks in hand, you may replace some small parts with larger parts to imprve the overall stability and color unification.
The idea of my LEGO® Frame project comes from the situation that displaying an official set at home needs too much space. When a new set comes, the old set has to go. However, instead of putting the old set back to its box, would it be a good idea to reduce it into a photo frame and hang it on the wall? Displaying a photo frame needs minimal space and one can also keep it free from dust!
There are two versions of this MOC. One is designed to fit into an IKEA Ribba 23×23 cam photo frame while the other is for Sannahed 25×25 cm photo frame. One may choose one to build depending on which frame you can find in your nearby IKEA. But of course, it looks fine even not in a frame!
I hope you enjoy this FRIEND in the Frame!
