We just bought a 50" Flat Panel TV so we have 2 options we are looking at.
Here is the existing (you can see how the console TV doesn't fit the space so a corner TV stand would not work there either UNLESS custom to that corner):
We would ceiling mount the TV over the fireplace, then build a custom component storage inside the stone of the existing firewood storage area (43"W x 19"H x 22"D approx) and run the cords along the edge of the fireplace between the tv & storage. This would give the area a clean straight across look - we might even be able to have bookshelves above the component storage. I would want this to look original the house.
We built a complete custom corner TV stand encompassing the firewood storage (approx 53"W x 24"D) making it symmetrical so we'd go in the other direction from the corner 53"W then 24"D then angle the front 45 degree to meet. We could also do corner shelves above. Again, I want this to look original to the house. I'd love to wrap stone around the bottom of it (like the existing ledge) & tie it in as well - but that might be too difficult in finding a match (finding a cultured fieldstone).
HELP....my husband is a novice when it comes to building cabinetry. I can design new cabinetry pretty well overall - THE CONCEPT, not in detail (and have done so for many projects in my business), but this is a little complex in dealing with existing conditions of the stone firewood storage with the rough edges so I need help to get it right.
Any experts out there know how I should do this project? I'm very visual and have autocad so I'd love to see some pictures and/or drawings of what might work. I can get detailed dimensions as well.
