Framed textile (frame should be a few inches larger than fireplace opening)
Two 3-inch L-brackets
On bottom of frame, measure 6 inches in from outside edges, and mark holes. Predrill. Screw L-brackets securely into frame to create legs. The perpendicular part of brackets should be flush with edge of frame.
Set a weight, such as a brick, on top of each bracket to prevent the screen from tipping forward. Slide back into hearth to hide bricks.
