Sylvia the kitty decided she wasn’t ready for you to see the new “Gold Fireplace Screen” quite yet. She thinks all of this decorating is taking away from her lap nap time and she has decided to block you from seeing it. So pardon me, while I gently scoot my partner off of her perch…
Okay, that’s better. Don’t worry. Sylvia doesn’t hold a grudge. She will be back, trust me. Now you can see the beautiful gold fireplace screen a little bit better.
Wait, let me get right up in front of it…
The gold fireplace screen was not something I had planned to do. Actually, what happened is that I got the mail (whoops!) and noticed a beautiful gold fireplace screen in front of a fireplace on the cover of one of the decorating magazines I receive. I immediately thought about it in front of our living room gas fireplace because we don’t have anything there. Looking at it from a safety point of view, we really should.
Ironically enough, today is St. Patrick’s Day and the gold “clovers” in the center of the fireplace screen couldn’t have shown up at a better time. They really do give off a modern vibe, don’t they?
I ordered this gold fireplace screen on-line (source is below) and it was very fairly priced. When it arrived I was so excited when it seemed to fit like a glove. I should have done this a long time ago.
Here are a few tips if you decide to order one for your fireplace:
-Measure your fireplace and make sure you are getting the right size for the look you are going for. They are all designed differently and it really depends on what shape your fireplace is.
-I decided to spray paint this one with a light coat of gold spray paint because the original wasn’t as shiny as I wanted it (the original was gorgeous too though). It only took a couple minutes to spray. I used this gold spray paint. Let me know if you have questions on that.
-Below you will find several of my favorites and they go up in price as you go down.
