Gold Fireplace Screen


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…

What a gorgeous gold fireplace screen that didn't cost a fortune!

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…

What a gorgeous gold fireplace screen that didn't cost a fortune!


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.

Wow! I never thought to try a gold fireplace screen in front of our fireplace. It updates it without no paint and no work! They are pretty inexpensive, too.

    Gorgeous! That gold with the black; very rich looking and goes so well with the touch of old items you have on your book shelf.
    Screen looks great with the red brick as well.
    Good choice on fireplace screen.

      that is to say Gold items not old items. Sorry about that.
      Crazy keyboard needs to learn how to type better :}

    Gorgeous!!! Truly makes such an elegant statement for your fireplace!!
    Excellent eye & call☘️??

  3. Jan says:

    Visually perfect in how it mimics the movement of ruffles on the skirt above the fireplace. Happy Day!

  4. Catherine Cooper says:

    Very nice addition to the fireplace, Julie! Gives it that “finished” look.

  5. Ann says:

    I never would have thought of doing gold, it looks amazing especially paired with your beautiful print above. That is gorgeous.

    Thanks for this post. It’s given me an idea for my firplace screen. My firescreen followed me out the door at my local Home Depot store. A $10 clearance price spoke sweet nothings to me. So no measuring took place. And of course the fireplace screen is a little too short in height and a little too short in width. Looking at the screens on ur website, I see some have legs. Hmmm. Going to see how I can add legs to mine. And also add width and height. Still, I’m happy to have a firescreen for $10. I like ur site very much and your history. It’s one of the first blogs I started following.

    • Julie says:

      Thank you, Diane! You share my sister’s name ? You have me stumped for what to use for the legs. Hmmmm…

    I love it!!! Such elegance! I love the rhythm and flow between the canvas ruffles above and the duplication of the screen. Something about the added drama of the black reminds me of the elegance of “Old Hollywood.” Thank you for sharing! Is the canvas a picture of your wedding gown? If it is, how romantic! If not, still beautiful!

    • Julie says:

      Hi, Sherry! No it is not my dress, but I do have our wedding photo close by and when i was taking a photo of the photo ? the wedding dress in the painting showed up in the reflection of the mirrored frame! It was kind of freaky!!

    I love the look of your fireplace. My home won’t carry that much dark color, though. It is a small ranch cottage. I elected to use Williamsburg Damask Yellow on the walls and an off white fireplace. Do you think an antiqued gold or rose-gold would work with these colors or should I go with black or white?

    Also, will regular spray paint last with the heat, or do you use a spray paint for woodstoves or other hot metals?


    • Julie says:

      Hi Carrie! I think gold would be beautiful with yellow. Our fireplace is a gas fireplace, so it really doesn’t get super hot and it’s placed back a bit. If your screen is closer to the fire I would recommend using a fire safe spray paint.

  9. Debbie says:

    Lovely and compliments the painting above. I just order one also, but a flat fireplace screen because my kitty decided it was fun to play in the soot then run through the house. But I really like the finished look it gives the fireplace.

  10. Cindy Pinardi says:

    Stunning room. And the wedding dress (I think) is just the perfect touch. Love seeing all your beautiful work.

  11. Darlene says:

    Amazing how that little touch of gold made the room just pop! Love how metals and textiles can transform a room .. it’s the frosting on the cake!

  12. Kyle says:

    I love it! Especially when the kitty takes over the shot. What a little ham!

  13. Ivory says:

    Wow, I love these fantastic fireplace screens. Nice picks.

  14. Kaycee F says:

    Love the new fireplace screen, and the gold paint you used on it! I think it really adds another pop of “glam” to the space. I love the view looking into the room with the curtain panels framing the shot!

  15. Rebecca says:

    Is this a painting by Judi Dunbar?

  16. Traci says:

    I just bought the same fireplace screen, I do find it a little on the orangish gold color. So this is a great idea to use the spray paint. Did you have to sand it before you sprayed it?

  17. […] After I was done painting the brick, and the mantle, I felt as though it was a bit too white.  Uh oh.  I got a little worried (and even a little nauseous) until I remembered to put back my gold fireplace screen.  When I put it back, I was in love.  It totally made me smile.  If you want more information on the fireplace screen, just click here: Fireplace Screen.
