Sandra's Cottage

Sandra Foster, transformed a little Victorian hunting cabin into the ultimate romantic retreat.

How inspiring to think that all this romance and whimsy, was achieved with the most humble of budgets.

The chandelier hanging over the sitting area cost a mere $15 at a local flea market, and many of Sandra's other treasures are old and abandoned cast offs, given new life with a lick of paint and a little elbow grease.

A stream runs between the cottage and the trailer-home, that Sandra and her husband Todd share on the 14 acre property, and so all the furnishings had to be light weight enough to be carried over it!

The glorious shabby-chic sleeping alcove is only accessed with a loft ladder, making it the perfect secret hideaway.
