Ideas for mounting monitor without mount?

This is kind of a silly question. I currently have a 27” monitor as my main but I have an old acer that’s not in use. I want to have another monitor for streaming and editing and stuff but I don’t have a mount for it. Any creative ideas for putting a monitor somewhere where I can see it?

Whats wrong with the stand?

You can mount it using vesa mount.

If you figure out the make and model you might be able to buy the stand second hand, alternatively you could prop it up against a wall/books/your computer case and use an anti slip mat to make sure it doesnt move.

take plywood and cut a vesa pattern (400mm x 400mm or whatever your monitor is) square and use 4 screws to secure it to monitor, and put a kickstand off of it with another piece of wood with angled cuts on it so it stands how you want.  Drill a hole in the kickstand (so you dont split the wood with a screw) and either secure with nut and washer to vesa plywood or screw in (not deep!) to vesa plywood.  Id opt for beveling out the vesa plywood on the monitor side so that I could put a screw through and it sit flush, and then secure it through kickstand with a nut and washer.
