Show Your Team Spirit with a Collegiate Fireplace Screen

November 29th, 2007 by Brad Crooks

Even though we now live in Colorado, we’re still University of Illinois football fans, probably because our niece graduated from U of I.  She will always be a Fighting Illini, and when we saw the house she rented, we weren’t surprised to Collegiate Fireplace Screens From find orange and blue memorabilia incorporated into the furnishings.  Since she had a wood burning fireplace, I couldn’t resist telling her about one more way to love her team – with a collegiate fireplace screen sporting the team logo.

The screen is a three panel black wrought iron frame, with scroll work above and below the oval stained glass logo.  Though many stained glass fireplace screens can’t be used with a fire, the glass on these screens is tempered, which means that you can cheer on your favorite team through the bowl games in front of a roaring blaze.  Even if your team didn’t get a bowl invitation, having a team logo on your fireplace screen means you can keep the fire burning for next season. 

Some families even have more than one fireplace screen, rotating them based on the time of year – using one that can handle the heat of a fire during the winter, and having a different one during the summer just for decoration.  My alma mater is too small to have a logoed fireplace screen (we were a Division III school), but if you attended one of the big schools, here’s your chance to show your team a little more love on game day!
