I built this bench last fall. My clients wanted to make the existing mantle/fireplace more of a focal point for the room, and make it look like it had always been that way. So, we designed the new pieces to match the style of the original trim work in the house. The base of the bench opens up to store the Tivo and cable box, and a flat screen TV is now installed on the wall above the bench (The first picture is the “before,” and the second two are “after”).
