Elegant Media Storage Idea

Turn a bookcase into a mirrored media cabinet.

Tommy Smythe, associate designer with Sarah Richardson Design and co-star of HGTV's Sarah's Cottage and Sarah's House, had mirrored antique french windows installed on one wall of his former library to hide the TV. A white-painted frame matches the trim on the recessed bookshelves flanking the newly created cabinet. The black leather club chair from the 1950s was his grandfather's favourite.
