Making Storage space behind the fireplace?

So a while back someone posted a mod that included putting a frame, hinge and locking mechanism for their fireplace that allowed them access to the space behind their fireplace. I thought I had saved it but cannot find it so I'm posting this in hope whomever has done it can repost how they've done it. Not sure but I thought it was on the same Coach as mind, as well, though I won't swear to that. It seems to me this would be a great place to store things like papertowels, toilet paper and other less used items when traveling on long trips. It seems to me this is wasted spaced but I could be wrong.
Thanks in advance.

I do not know how much space there is behind the fireplace on your coach. We ordered the delete which gave us doors so we have access to what should be all of that space. However, there is just not much space available. Also when the slides are in, the cabinet doors do not open. At least not enough to access items in the cabinet. May be worth the effort for you, but I would not make the mod unless I had a specific item that made sense to be stored in that location.
