Anyway, since we aren’t burning fires in the warm months because it’s pretty much a fire outside (it was 114 degrees last week in Phoenix!) a colorful screen would be great to bring some cheer instead of a black hole of a fireplace. I might put a fern or plant in front, something low profile. But I don’t really need to with the colorful painted planter that is now on my fireplace screen.
I found this 90s fireplace screen at Camelback Antiques a few weeks ago. I have been looking for one and it was about the right price, $85. I took photos and measurements, went home and then returned the next day. Oh, also with that large oval frame too – an item I had passed up at a flea market and was so sad about but found it in the antique store (same seller).
I found these from Scully & Scully that are gorgeous, and vary in price and size. I am not saying these are cheap but I have come across vintage ones that were priced around $150 so I think new isn’t terribly bad if you can save time not having to hunt. The Lily of the Valley at $195 isn’t terribly priced.
You can look at them as pieces of art to look at every season and it’s something to change things up and refresh! Of course if you can find a vintage one, it would be fun to add to your list of things to hunt for while antique shopping.
Diana Elizabeth is missing gardening. She thinks her garden is looking really horribly unattractive right now and she’s pretty discouraged but also there’s not much she can do about it, so inside projects it is. She ordered a new living room ceiling fan and is waiting to get a swatch for a rug to place a custom order.
