The back story is is that I really wanted window seats so the flatscreen had to find a home above the fireplace. I know this is a big issue of debate. But, the screen has helped and it was a great project. I heart having a handy husband!
I hunted down some vintage bird & botanical prints & had custom mats made for them.
The frames are cheap-o ones from Michaels that I stained and added gold leaf to – another tip from Fram!
DH had to get custom hinges made to make the screen open easily. It’s a bit more tricky than it looks.
Very happy with the finished product minus the fact that I get in trouble when I accessorize the mantel too much and the TV won’t turn on. I can’t help it!
I’m making a few screens now in French Linen. Already have the prints and this little gal has them painted.
