A look inside Sandra Foster’s charming Victorian shabby chic cottage..

Here’s Sandra Foster standing on the porch of her tiny Victorian dream home in the Catskills, New York. Sandra turned the former hunting cabin into a romantic cottage she had always dreamed of using salvaged architectural finds and doing the carpentry herself!

The tiny 9ft by 10ft cottage features a living space with a pretty shabby chic sofa; vintage cabinetry showing off Sandra’s enviable collection of Limoges china and bookshelves have been built into the slant of the roof for all her books. The fire surround was a flea market find and holds all of Sandra’s pretty vintage trinkets and candles. It is pretty much a girl’s dream hideaway I reckon..

Looking back towards the front of the cottage we see the sleeping loft in the roof which is reached by a ladder. This is the most beautiful bedroom nook I have ever seen. She has some of Rachel Ashwell‘s gorgeous ruffled bedlinen on the bed and has covered the roof with floaty white drapes. THE perfect place for a nap! And how cute is that little window by the bed?!

Here’s a close up of the little bedroom nook…

Sandra made these shelves herself and found the chippy painted French doors at a flea market for $15 each!

Sandra made the window box herself from salvaged wood and added the garland decorations.
