Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Well, it's only been 27 months since we moved in but I finally have the tv niche and the (dreaded to some) 42" tv over the FP doors installed.

Why so long, waiting for the "perfect" thing to come along. I thought the screen would come first...tried to find a wallpaper that went in the room and didn't fade into a solid color at a distance. I was going to have a screen made similar to this:

Many months of looking led to nothing I loved. :( Then I had a eureka moment when I found this shutter:

The thought of making sliding panels instead of folding (so DH would not knock things off the mantel) included wood and copper panels. Lots of copper in our home: solid cupola on the garage, gutters/downspouts, kitchen and laundry back splashes and range hood. Open concept home so copper over the great room FP echos the copper range hood in the kitchen.

Lucky for me, the carpenters who worked on my kitchen have gone out on their own and are doing custom work. They did a fantastic job making my vision come to life. I am very pleased. :D They'll be back in the morning to run the base across the wall under the niche shutter/door and install a wooden latch to keep the door closed...but I couldn't wait to share pictures.

Allison it's gorgeous! Can you show us a long shot? I would love to see it all together. It looks like it was the perfect fix! Well worth the 27 month wait, I'm sure.

Allison~

This looks amazing. I don't know which I like better... the tv cover or the door. Geesh, some people are sooo clever. You really ought to share some of that creativity with those of us less blessed with that gene. LOL!

It's beautiful. This is the first I've seen of your great room, and of course now I love your home even more. It's beautiful!

Hey, I think we have the same fireplace mantle. Ours isn't installed yet, and if it's not the same, it's certainly similar!! :o) Looks great in your space. Can't wait to see mine installed. Should be soon!

Thanks for sharing your photos. I'll check back this weekend to see the new photos you take from the kitchen.

Good choices!


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Wow - what wonderful ideas you had and they really came together! I can't believe what a great job your carpenters did in customizing the shutter - it looks like it's always been that way!


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Thanks for this post. We have the exact same fireplace/niche setup. We are thinking about buying a flat screen tv to put above the fireplace, and I want to do something with that niche. One of my neighbors had shelves and doors built for his, and it looks really good. I can't wait to see a closeup of yours in daylight!


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

You did GREAT! Your home is clearly gorgeous -- you should be so proud of yourself for coming up with that terrific idea. Wow.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Allison, super! You did a marvelous job and it looks perfect. Where ever did you find that shutter?


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

That really does look nice! Very palatable for a tv :) Beautiful room, and I just love your white walls!!


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Wow!
Wonderful, Unique and, well, just wow!


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Yes indeed, wonderful doors, what a great idea !

question re: tv mounting. Was there a stud there, how is the tv anchored to the wall, did it need special reinforcement. Was the space around it calculated so you could remove the tv if repair was needed ?
I am in the process of asking a carpenter to do this in our next home.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

That is absolutely gorgeous. Your room is stunning; sophisticated but warm and comfortable, and very functional. Accomplishing that is no easy task, so give yourself a well deserved pat on the back. You will love spending time in there; I know I would! Well worth the wait, now just sit back and enjoy.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Absolutely gorgeous,ingenious and creative! You have such a beautiful home, well thought-out and executed to perfection. I think you missed your "design" calling.

RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

What a nice way to wake up! Thank you all so much.

Totallyblessed, I purchased the mantel via the internet from Mission Stone. I did change it just a bit - had about 2-3" cut from the bottom. The mantel piece was just too busy for me and a bit taller than I wanted.

Juddgirl2, DH was examining them last night and was totally impressed with the workmanship. They can build anything! I've seen photos of beds they've made and they had to reconstruct one of my kitchen cabinets (fridge unit) that arrived too tall. They also made the range hood trim from antique pine. They were going to use old oak, but had just enough left over quartersawn oak from another job so I got the "scrap" upgrade for free. :D

Texanjana and mitchedsj, DH picked out the tv while we were building so we knew the dimensions. I insisted it be recessed into the wall so whatever covered it wouldn't stick out too far. Didn't want a cabinet hanging on the wall. I will locate a photo of that area during construction and post later, as they are on CDs now.

Texanjana, what did you want a close up taken of? He is here now and the sun is coming out so I'll take long shots when he leaves. We have window tinting on the back of the house and it does cut down on good light for photographs.

rmkitchen, thank you.

Oceanna, I found the shutter at a local antique store. They had three of them - too large to use over the tv (would have gone over the speaker in the wall). The other two were not in the best of shape either. Best part - only 44 bucks!

Squirrel, the walls photograph brighter than they are IRL. They are painted SW Moderate White. It's a warm white. I really like the way it changes during the daytime and I love it at night.

Amity, jjam and patricia, thank you!

View of great room from the kitchen sink. Will replace black shades with silk.

Close up of shutter/door

From hallway off of kitchen towards great room. (Where the black hutch is located in link below.) Going to replace French chair with something bigger. Maybe replace the table too, although that is DH's end of sofa and he likes the table.

I've dreamt of lattice doors for ages, though I was thinking white for my space. Maybe I'll do it! Have to figure out something for some built-ins :)

What is between/behind the lattice work? Can't tell from the photo.

I just looove your colors and the wall color. Thanks for the name, I'll have to check it out.

Love your handscraped floors -- how are they finished? Is it oiled or waxed?


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Allison, that looks perfect! I'm so glad that you were able to see your dream for that come true! :)

 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Allison, your house is my absolute favourite on the boards, I always look forward to seeing pictures of it. You've managed to make the dreaded TV-over-mantle look not just okay, but amazing! You have a wonderful eye for design.

I wish I could find shutters like those in my local antiques shop for $44 - the last time I saw anything remotely similar they were old French doors at an antiques show - for $400 each!

 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

The first picture scared me LOL I thought...oh dear that fireplace is gorgeous and they have ruined it with this ugly tv...then the second...that screen looked sloppy...then your pictures actually came up. Sheesh it's gorgeous and looks lovely in the room!!!! Very nice work!!


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Squirrel, the backside of the shutter is identical to the front. They were probably working shutters. It's made with individual pieces of tin between the lattice work. The shutters had to be custom to begin with, since it is not tin between two pieces of lattice "panels." Hope that makes sense!

The floors are not hand scraped. Just 3 1/4" #2 oak, stained Dark Walnut and finished with Minwax Tung Oil. It's easy to touch up if the dog scratches - just get out the tung oil and put a little bit on a paper towel. I've only gone around the house twice since we moved in.

Thank you, Southernheart.

Gwendolynne, that's so sweet. Thank you! Before I found the shutters, I found two gorgeous handcarved (but simple) panels. She had 12 of them for 15K. I asked if she was interested in selling two and she said no. I'm glad she did!

Thank you, Ree and Cameron.

LOL Igloochic. Thanks. When we moved in, I actually didn't find the tv to be as bad as I had thought it would be...but I did get tired of seeing it during the day since I never turn it on.

The good news is DH loves the screen so much he is happy to close it up at night. Now if I could just get him to fluff the pillow on his end of the sofa before retiring!


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Allison, I'm looking for new flooring and have five dogs. So what you said about your floors very much interests me. You're saying they were not factory finished at all, but were finished with a colored Minwax stain from the beginning? Would you advise this for dog owners? Your floor does look nice.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Yes, it is oak flooring, installed unfinished. Finished on site. We had it in our last home too...even added it in the kitchen when we bought the house and upstairs when we did an addition.

In my area, most people put down 2 1/4" oak, finished on site. I wanted wider boards but didn't want pine - too much grain for me. So I went with the #2 (not clear, a few distressed marks and knots - wish it had a more!) in 3 1/4". #1 grade cost more and is clearer. Heavier distressed cost even more than #1.

After installing and sanding, they applied the stain, then three coats of tung oil. I have one 55lb dog that runs circles and he hasn't hurt it. I love the older look it has and the fact that it isn't shiny. Even satin poly was more shine than I wanted.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Wow... what a bargain for the shutter. Don't you love it when you get a great item for an unbelievable price? Doesn't happen to me very often, but when I do, it's a thrill. :o)

I checked out the link to your fireplace. Mine is a bit different. I left my paperwork for lighting AND my fireplace at my house in CA when we flew back for our Oct. visit. Ooops!

I can't remember the name of the maker for our surround. I bought ours (cast stone) thru a local fireplace dealer. They installed our firplaces and will install our surround when the time comes. I like that it appears your company allows color choices. Mine just came in one color, and at this point I'm hoping it "goes" with the chosen wall color for great room. LOL!

Loved seeing additional photos. Your home is just gorgeous! Are the stuffed animals in the basket for the dogs (I think I see a mallard duck on top??). :O)


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Allison, this looks wonderful. Worth the wait for sure! I wish I had your vision!

Is that a paper towel holder on your island - it is so interesting. Where did you get that? Thanks.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Lovely! So worth all the looking and planning.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Thank you all!

TB, yes those are the dog's toys. :D I bought him a bunny at the grocery store yesterday. He didn't want to go walk around the yard afterwards for worrying about it inside! lol When DD2 brings her dogs over, they empty them all out...just like kids. :D

Polkadots, I purchased the paper towel holder from David T Smith. I'll link it below. If you're interested after seeing the price, sign up for emails and they'll let you know when they are adding new pieces. The container has a raised bottom inside to hold the towel roll in the center. I love the cracked glazing on my piece.

 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Allison- I too thought the tv looked icky, also thought the panels were ok, then was impressed with the final result. Really neat!

We are in process of rebuilding our fireplace after putting in an energy efficient unit, with tv above. My concern also was to not have this black monster up there. The fireplace is already dark. We thought of doing something like yours but the idea never went far. I simply thought of sconces on sides of tv but dh and dd thougth that would be distracting.

So as we were installing the mantle yesterday we got talking. I showed him your results and he loved it! We are thinking of taking a picture and making 4 panels.

Here is where I need your help. Obviously your two panels slide over, then the single one does. I see the track that they are on. Where did they get the track system. I am sure we can rig something but thought I would see if you knew what they used. I am thinking I might have a hinge between my two panels so that when they slide over, the middle ones will flip over the side one, so that the picture on other side is not showing and therefore not distracting you from the tv. Yours is not distracting because it is the copper. I think a pic would be a little more distracting.

Since we have our wall literally tore up we are at a point where we can do anything. So we need to recess the tv, center speaker was already going to be recessed so this will just add to that project already planned.

I love this forum. It allows us to see so much and get inspired. It actually makes me feel like this project will actually get done.

Thanks in advance for any info you can share.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Once again - a stroke of genius. You are my number one top notch designer on this forum. Your whole house is lovely!


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Thanks, hoosiergirl. I made a mistake with a rug purchase (not in any of the pictures above) but ended being able to use it in a lower level bedroom. I wasn't about to make a mistake with something screwed to the wall!

Shannon, Thanks! I decided to do three panels since more wood would show with four...plus the "rule" about odd numbers. I don't like to follow "rules" but odd usually looks better than even. ;)

They ordered the tracks online, but don't know from what company. Maybe try a search for furniter slides or sliders. They come in all lengths. He said these will hold up to 50lbs each.

Good luck with your project.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Allison, it looks fantastic! One thing I've always wondered about though with wall-mounted televisions... Where do you hide all the components (cable box, DVD player, etc.)? Several months ago, when we moved into this house, we mounted our television in the family room on a wall but all the components are sitting underneath on a small IKEA console until I could figure out how to hide them. I see rooms like yours all the time with the components out of plain site. How is that done anyway?


 o
Sunday

Thank you, Rosewind. We ran the wiring for the satellite between the niche and the tv opening during construction. Actually we ran two sets of wire between there and the dish...in case the first one is ever taken out by lightning.

We have a fancy remote control that uses an "eye" that's mounted on the bottom right corner inside where the tv is mounted. The eye talks to the devices/equipment so the door can stay closed at all times.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Thanks, Allison. I just showed My DH your setup and he asks if you could be more specific about how you are controlling the components (the satellite receiver, DVD and audio controls). What device (the "eye"?) ties all the components together to one remote? Did you have this installed professionally or is this a DIY project?

Thanks in advance!


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Thanks about the flooring! Tung oil is so pungent, though. I was afraid of what's in it and was even wondering if oil was used on floors. Love that natural, old look! and with pets, the poly isn't so great, imo. I'll be finishing my own floors :)


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Rosewind, I think a company called Smarthome.com has those remote controllers. If I remember correctly, they're pretty pricey, though.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Alison: I've admired your kitchen many times on the kitchen forum, but first time I've seen the rest of your lovely home. Your solution for the TV is amazing--love the copper accents, love the shutter. Goes perfectly with the post and beam ceiling. Just curious, what does the outside of your house look like?


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Rosewind, the remote we have is by rti. www.ritcorp.com

It's the T2+ Universal system touch screen remote controller. It's shaped like a regular remote but is a bit longer.

I think, from looking at the spec sheets, it has a RM-433 Receiver module - that's the "eye." But then there are two other parts - SPS-1 Video sync power sensor and the VPS-1 voltage power sensor - on the specs that have something to do with it too. All are RTI products, I believe. Really wasn't "my thing" to select and DH was the one that talked with the company. Nothing is priced separately in the bid, so no prices.

Squirrel, the tung oil smell doesn't bother me but I suppose doing the entire floor could be quite strong. The smell wasn't loud when I saw it at the end of the day. I agree, poly isn't great with pets. Shows too many scratches. Oh, fyi, the flooring company owner told me his brother is allergic to peanuts and when he did his first floor with tung oil he had to be rush to the ER.

Valinsv, thank you. I love our kitchen. I don't post pictures of the front of the house but I'll post a few of the garage and lower level/back of house. We live on 4.5 acres on a lake, so lots of woods. The house is a European cottage - suppose to look like a house that's been added to an old stone barn. Our stonemasons did a wonderful job.

 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Thanks, Allison. I'll pass the info to DH. Looking at the first couple of photos again, I can now see the components in the niche. I missed that upon viewing them initially, as the picture is somewhat dark on my monitor.

Again, looks great! And many thanks for the information!


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

You're welcome. Another fyi, the slides are mounted onto pieces of wood - not directly to the wall. Not sure you can tell that in the photo.

Also, I received an email they would be finishing up a table top they are making for me from old wood for our existing breakfast room table and bringing it out this week. I'll ask them where they ordered the slides when they come.

Allison, I just love the pictures of you room. You should have went into the designing business. I love the covering for the TV that goes beautifully in your room and looks perfect over the fireplace. I also like the Moderate White paint color that goes well with your woodwork and furniture. Congratulations on another creative beautifully designed room.

Allison,

If its great weather you want, how about the Napa Valley? ... we have great wine and food, too. I'm in the middle of a kitchen, MBdm, whole house remodel and sure could use your fabulous decorating skills!

You've done a fabulous job designing and decorating your home. Thank you for sharing all the above information. I've sent Mission Stone an email to see if they offer narrower fireplace surrounds (MBdrm corner fireplace). I like the color of your fireplace, can you tell me the color? That ceramic paper towel holder is a great idea!

You truly have a beautiful home, hope mine looks half that good!
Seriously, the sun is shining and the welcome mat is out ....


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Thank you, Lynn. I grew up in a furniture store family and always thought I would end up working in one of the stores....but we found out you could lease the spaces and not have to go to work everyday. ;) It is and was a good job to have so I could stay home with the children.

Thank you, Jana.

LOL Napagirl. DD1 has lived in San Francisco for four years - just went to visit her - but I've never been to Napa. I don't drink wine but I do like to eat. :)

Looking at their website, I believe it was Rustic. The samples look different now.....it looks darker. But if you go to the Gallery, and scroll down to Custom Series - mine is like the Preston/Canterbury (Rustic). But I had some of the bottom section of the mantel cut off (you can compare the pictures and see what I had done).

I'll go pull my invoice and let you know if it was the Rustic or not.

Allison,

You are brilliant! I have the same dilemma in my own new home, and our design is similar to yours (kitchen open to great room with same ceiling treatment). DH is insistent on the TV above the fireplace as much as I dislike it. This was #3 on his wish list (after walk out basement and 4 car garage) so it was hard to say no when my own wish was so long!(HA).

 o
Wood counters

Allison,

I notice you have face grain wood on your beautiful island counter, soft pine at that. Do you have to be really careful with that? No cutting on the surface, etc? I'm getting butcherblock, one reason being for the durability, and porousness for food prep, I believe, that they described over a face grain surface. Oil and sand as needed :)

I also notice kitchen counters in the David Smith's links that are face grain.

How do you use your wood counters? Any sink problems? Food safe finish?

Any info you can share is appreciated.

Thanks.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Thanks, Teresa. Would love to see photos of your home. I'll have to do a search later.

Squirrel, it is antique pine. I do not cut directly on the counter at all. When needed, I use a cutting boards either on the island or next to the range. Don't cut directly on the granite either.

We are good about wiping away water splatters after washing hands or dishes. I have never left a glass sitting on the counter overnight, so I don't know what that would do. The guys just asked me about that when they were here installing the tv cover.

The pine is finished with Good Stuff for Wood which is FDA approved for food prep surfaces. I order from the below link. Have only recoated twice in 27mths. I clean the island with a damp sponge and have started using Lysol wipes too.

 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

It has a nice soft shine. I've seen that stuff, probably on Bally. I'm mixed about how much I want to work directly on my counter. I may experiment on a small island area before distressing the main counter :)

So, do you lay out damp lettuce and veggies on it directly? Worry about any messes or spills while you're working? I tend to clean up while I go, but am not a neat worker. And when I'm tired, well ....... who knows.


 o
Squirrel

Yes, I like that it's not very shiny. If you use, do follow the directions and go with the grain, don't apply to thick and no swirly motions or you could be left with swirly areas. Ask DH how I know. They fade away but still.....

I lay out damp lettuce, etc and don't worry about spills while I'm preparing a dish. I clean as I go and that includes wiping up the counter now and then. I am a neat freak - why does that make me feel funny typing out?! lol - so I haven't worried too much.

DH tends to prep on either side of the range. He realizes his limits. :D


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Hi Allison, did you remove your pictures by chance? I guess I'm coming in to this party late and I don't see anything, like they've been removed, or I'm having technical difficulties, one or the other.
We're in the early stages of replacing our fireplace, took out the old wood burning, and we're going to replace with a direct vent, put a flat screen above and still not sure about the design. I'm looking for as many pictures as I can find for ideas, and saw how many people were raving about yours. I'd love to see them. Any chance I can get a direct link to them?
Thanks.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

I would like to see too. Thanks.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Sorry. No pictures left on Photobucket. DH is out of town with camera, but the panels are leaning on the DR wall at the moment anyway - TV went black (not even 3yo!) and we had to remove them to send TV to shop.

The guys who made the sliding panels for me came to remove them. I found out they used very large drawer glides. They used 28" glides on the double panel side and 14" glide on the single panel slide.

Hope this helps.


 o
RE: Custom TV and TV Niche Doors - Lot of Photos

Are you saying you do not have the pictures @ all for view. I registered just to be able to see what these looked like. I have also been researching for about a year and do not like anything out there and was contemplating something custom made that sounds like what you have. could you share one shot, please
