Can I convert an old console television into a decorative fireplace?

I picked up an old console television at a thrift store a while back and while it still works, the image isn't exactly stellar.  I love the cabinet though, and I was thinking about some cool uses for it.  A friend suggested making it into a fireplace, and I love the idea.  Has anyone ever tried it?  I figure all I really need is an electric fireplace insert, obviously one that doesn't have a real flame.  Any suggestions?

You could remove the old TV and replace it with a nice flat screen. Put it on a type of pull out tray and you could store stuff behind the screen. Just a random thought.
