Inspiration for a shabby-chic style sunroom remodel in Cincinnati with no fireplace

Gary + Gayle: Cincinnati, Ohio

Shabby-chic Style Sunroom, Cincinnati

On the sun porch, a mix of natural materials strikes an elegant balance. "We use and re-purpose what we have that's special to us", Gayle says of Gary's and her decorating philosophy. "And when we buy furniture or something else, we make sure it speaks to our hearts and appears to have lived some life already." The couple created the wooden screen out of salvaged doors, attaching them with the original hinges. A galvanized trough from Pottery Barn is used throughout the year to chill refreshments, while crisp cotton linens soften the scheme and offer a comfortable resting place.

    They were 2 different doors found at a garden center that also carried salvaged pieces. Maybe check online for architectural salvage merchants in your area. Or even Ebay! Another option might be reclaimed barn wood/hardware merchants; "headboard" featured in the basement guest bedroom was a whole door from either a barn or shed turned sideways & hung on a long wooden cleat.
