I am so pleased with the way my sliding barn door leisure middle turned out.  All of the sport programs and cable bins are hidden behind the barn doors when not in use, but the doors simply slide open up to give access when needed.  The more storage is fantastic for all of the PS4/XBox online games and our DVDs and I even have a basket for distant controls. Everyday living is good for all of us!
