LCD TV over Fireplace..


What have you all done with your Cable boxes, DVD, stereo and other componets when you hung your TV over the fire place? I have a little space to the left of my fireplace.. What kind of shelve can I buy, cheaper is better

LCD TV over Fireplace..


I found a few but nothing like I want. I need a cabinet that will hold my Dvd, stereo and cable box that will hang on the wall. The thing that is getting me is I want the doors that slide back so they are hidden but I can close it offer when I need. Any help would be much appreciated.

Klint,

Can you post a pic of what your situation looks like?

Lot's of possibilities, but I'd really need to see what's there to begin with....

Klint -

What is your budget? There are some nice vertical racks that should compliment your setup and accomodate the components you need to run your system.

Is it possible to place the shelving behind the t.v. (hidden shelves), build a frame which holds your t.v. and place a hinge on the side? As long as it is not a woodburning fireplace, of course. How large of space on the side? Wood shelves from say, Home Depot, Lowe's, etc. using wood shelf brackets?

Another option, if the wall you will be hanging the t.v. on, is drywall...place a hole in the drywall behind the t.v., snake the wires up/down to a hole at the bottom/side of the fireplace and place a cabinet with all electronic inside.
