DIY Wood Fireplace Screen

Hi there!  Are you getting ready for Christmas?? I have been non stop it seems and just need to slow down time to take in my favorite time of the year.  I think I say this every December.

 I'm sharing a quick and so simple fireplace screen I made in less than 5 minutes with 2 items!  Our fireplace is big, and in when it's not being used, it can look like a big black hole in the family room. I love a nice wood stack fireplace.  I admire a wood slice screen,  I just don't feel like making it! 
  I stumbled on the best solution:  Contact paper.

Okay, honestly, I was thinking it would be a bust and I would just chuck it.  But I love it!  Of course I had to remove it to use our fireplace now that it is FREEZING out, but it will really look nice in the warmer months to come.  I can envision this on a faux fireplace as an inexpensive way to add texture and dimension as well.

I bought this roll from Amazon for about $25.

I measured out my fireplace opening and cut a spare piece of cardboard to fit the space, then adhered the contact paper to the cardboard.


Here's the big black hole before...

Here's the after...

Thanks for checking it out!
