We reno'd our living space and put a gas fireplace in the corner. The layout of the room meant the corner was the best place for it. Sean then built a wonderful entertainment cabinet around it. It even has a pull-out shelf for the TV that swivels so you can point the TV to any part of the room, which was a great idea. The front is made from a single 4X8 sheet of wood which looks beautiful.
The little piece of green tape is so we could open it before the handles were attached. We liked the look so much we didn't put handles on at all, but we did remove the tape!
Unfortunately, no before pictures, but that was only a corner with a lone fireplace in it.
As well, a piece of conduit in the back made it easy to run cables into the back for TV, satellite, power, etc etc.
