Wye River Waterfront

Over thefireplace we displayed the clients photograhy by custom making 4 panels that would fold back to reveal the TV. Great focal point for this Great Room!

Specifics - Such a clever idea! Did you use custom or standard size frames, and if the latter, what size? What were the dimensions of the overall opening you covered?

I understand how you did the hinges, but I am intrigued as to how the are attached to the wall and if the frame slides back at all? Lastly, was the tv a thin frame as
it looks like the whole thing is only about 3-4" out from the wall when closed. I would love to pay you (or a member of your team) to come and create this for our new home.

Thanks!

Love your idea for the TV cabinet.......we have an existing cabinet that can use your idea to hide the TV.

TVCoverUps
Another solution you may want to consider is using TVCoverUps. Framed artwork or panel provides the focal point, until it swings upward to reveal the hidden TV. It comes in automatic and manual lifts and also allows for TV tilting hardware. Each unit is custom to the viewer and room, so it is always best to give us a call.

Picture frames. For those who love displaying pictures of their loved ones, here's a novel concept: Mat and frame some of your favorite photos, hinge them together and create a wall of art as your fireplace focal point. Fold the panels back when you need to watch some television — easy!Design tip: This option involves some careful measuring and installation, but it could even be a DIY project.

We custom made the doors from 12 framed photos and then used piano hinges on the panels. The cabinetmaker recessed the TV into the wall half of the depth needed and framed out the opening in wood for the rest. Just make sure when you go to the framer that you select a frame that has a substantial stile.
