Screen Your Fireplace for Warm Weather

How to do it: Retool your fireplace for spring with a screen made from a salvaged section of iron fence. Get one that's slightly larger than your firebox opening so that you can secure it to the surround. Add hook-on hangers to hold potted blooms.

Estimated cost: One 50-inch-wide-by-36-inch-tall iron section with a fleur-de-lis detail, about $75; Sarasota Architectural Salvage. Ace flowerpot holders, about $9 each; Ace Hardware
