Antique Fireplace Screen

14

January 18, 2016 by Terry

I love unique items!

When I saw this and realized what it was I just had to have it!  I had never seen one like this before …

Some of you may recognize this for what it is but for those of you who don’t, it is a fireplace screen.

How does it work?  Well, it unfolds into the most beautiful fanned out screen!

I have only dusted it so far with a damp cloth as I quite like the patina of it.  I don’t know how old it is exactly but I do know that it has beautiful detail.

I also like how it folds up to be something of an ornament when it isn’t in use.  When people see it they don’t realise that it is a fireplace screen.

I’m not sure if I will polish it up or not …

Anyways… I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend.  I had a surprisingly productive weekend painting and upholstering!  Now I just need to buckle down and take photos to share.  I still have photos to edit of the new dining room area as well which I promise (now I’m for sure accountable having said written it out loud) I will share this week!

Happy Monday!

Smiles!

  2. The fireplace screen is beautiful. When it was close I didn’t even realize what is was. Lovely patina on it, I think I would leave as is for now.

      Oh goodness NO! I’m not planning to paint it, just give it a better polishing than what I had done with just a damp cloth before taking the pictures :) … Just wasn’t sure if I liked it a little dull or shiny. I hope you’re having a great week! Can’t wait to see what you’re up to next!

    What a great find. I would just clean and hydrate it with hemp oil. Looks great as is.

      I agree Mary! I think people have the wrong idea about what I said in the post… I would never paint it! I just need to polish it up better as I only went over it with a damp rag before taking photos … My bad though for not being clear :) I hope you have a great day!

  5. Woohoo! That is beautiful. I almost like it when it is not fanned out. Don’t do anything for a while, and let it inspire you. This is why my husband says we have too much furniture….psssht, is that even possible? And he says they need to think and speak up with inspiration at a much more rapid pace…Haha!

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
