I can't speak to the size of the fireplace, but the sliding mesh enclosure looks similar to one's we offer. In which case, it's a recessed track, sliding metal mesh fire screen. It looks like a fine weave in a black finish.

We build floating mantels like this one. What we use for supporting one like this is a custom made per mantel steel bracket. For taller mantels we provide a wood bracket. We also offer custom depth, height and width in several types of wood.

Do you need a special kind of paint for painting a fireplace or just regular interior paint?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: A Mid-Century Modern Getaway
This cozy fireplace, built into the home's 12-inch thick adobe walls, was created into a snug sitting area with a 1940s Danish chair, French vintage table, and a unique Gio Ponti light fixture above the mantle.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Long Mantels Go the Distance
Minimal objects can provide an equal sense of equilibrium and impact. In this example, a small group of objects is juxtaposed with a fixture at a slightly higher height.
Samantha Schoech added this to How to Get That Modern Scandinavian Look
White walls and hearth with warm wood accents and subtle color.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 10 Inspired Ways to Refresh Your Mantel Now
A minimalist statement can also work on the mantel. Try grouping a cluster of like-colored pottery to one side. The visual weight of the grouping to one side helps create a modern vibe. A great-looking pendant balances the vignette.
Or go minimalist. That doesn't mean barren. It means a grouping of thoughtfully selected objects and no main art or mirror piece above.
Wood. This streamlined piece of wood used as a mantel is perfect for this retro interior. The one pictured here is referred to as a floating shelf, as there are no visible brackets supporting it. Such harmony! Design tip: Correct installation is of the utmost importance for this type of mantel. Since there are no brackets, it needs strong internal supports to be able to hold heavy objects.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 12 Hot Ideas for Fireplace Facing
Painted brick. An option I have used often, painted brick works every time. If you are longing to update your old red brick but are short on budget, paint your brick. Any color can work, but white works with so many different styles. Modern, rustic and coastal all work with a painted fireplace. Cost: If the bricks are being installed new, your project can cost $2,000 to $5,000 for raw materials and installation. (Read this before attempting it yourself, though.)What You Need to Know Before Painting Brick

This is a simple, mantel with clean lines. We could attach a simple mantel like this over your current stone. It would probably have to be a little thicker to hide the support braces inside of it.
