The Gnomad Beach Pad!

Built in the Mid Century and Only Blocks from the Beach.

A Match Made in Style and Relaxation Heaven!

20180210_133037-DSC_0126

It’s not just a home, its a vacation for you, or a great set for your filming production, or a nice location for a photo shoot!

2015-10-31 15.11.55

I mean check out the Sunken Living Room.  The Gnomad Beach Pad was Built in 1964. Old Stan kept great care of the house and we were happy to take it over after his death in 2012.  We honored him and his wife by not making a ton of changes.

20151031_151522-1

You can see in a previous post the changes we made: Our House Out House

I decorated the entire house with picked and found items.

20180204_084402-DSC_0002

I went with the design theme of Mid Century, because, well, It was built in the Mid Century!

20180211_075116-DSC_0238

I mean look at that original Formica counter top…

So we had to go all the way Mid Century in the Kitchen.

20180205_071708-DSC_0007

Vintage Tupperware for any and all occasion or storage needs!

20180211_085229-DSC_0282 (2)

Even Vintage Kitchen Appliances : Ice Crusher – Check, Milk Shaker Blender – Check, Mixer – Check, Juicer – Check, and even an Popcorn Popper – Check!

20180211_085642-DSC_0289 (2)_LI

Lovely Bunch of Lovely Vintage Bowls that I slowly collected by picking often and regularly.

20180210_112732-DSC_0052

Now for on top of the super cute Formica counter top!

20180210_112759-DSC_0053

Some of the stuff is just for show, and some for use, but love it all!

20180211_075110-DSC_0237.JPG

And yes those are old Cosco Stepping Stools as seating at the very large peninsula counter top!  Perfect height, why not?

20180211_075321-DSC_0242

Moving over to the Family room, the Hub of the House!

20180211_075103-DSC_0236

One big giant room with a fireplace on ones side and the sliding glass doors to the patio on the other side.

20180210_125320-DSC_0109

And a big TV, DVD Player and a Stereo for your entertaining pleasures.

20180210_114008-DSC_0067

Let’s take outside before we go into…

The Bedrooms!

20170310_173531

Hammock AND Bocce Ball.  Yes…And So Much More!

20180206_115306-DSC_0011

Easy Breezy Back Patio with curtains that go all the way around for extra privacy.

And get this…an Outside Shower with HOT water.

20180210_133405-DSC_0141

The front and side grass covered yards provide enough area for a football game and croquet match to go on a the same time, if not more activities!

20180210_133150-DSC_0130

So much room for so much fun!

20180206_110413-DSC_0006

Now that I wore you out with all those activities…

Let’s go the rooms of rest!

20180211_082643-DSC_0254

The Master Bedroom itself is a retreat!  Large, Light, Airy and oh so Comfortable!

And then there is the large En Suite Master Bathroom!

20180211_083734-DSC_0258

The Shower Sliding Doors and Toilet Private Swinging Door are to Mid Century Die For!

And the Huge Sunken Tub is to Relax in!  It is a Mid Century Beachy Mini Spa Room!

And now the Guest Rooms…

20180204_084515-DSC_0004.JPG

This is the “No place like Gnome” Guest Room.

Relaxing, complete with an adjustable bed, and a desk to write home on!

20180126_134907-DSC_0357

A nice place we like to call the “Mad Men Den” Guest Room.

Relaxation up front and Worker Bee Desk on the side.

And the Ever so Cute “Mamie Roosevelt” Pink Jack & Jill Bathroom…

20180204_084602-DSC_0006

It is as adorable as it looks.

Complete with vintage pink hamper and trash bin.  I could just live in there.

There is half bath too, but I have to leave something for your imagination!

20180204_105727-DSC_0002 (2)

That’s the House and here is some nature.

Take a look at the cute wood peckers I caught on film in the yard.

20180206_101355-DSC_0024 (2)

I’m a Hard Core Auntie because…

20161020_065648

I Encourage My Nieces and Nephews to Make!  Okay, sometimes I Make them Make!

IMG_1501190073994

But not with cooking or Drawing!

This is my Mirror Identical Twin Nieces Drawing a Picture, Together, at the Same Exact Time.

Isn’t that cool?  (PS…I did not teach them to cook or drawer, but I encourage it.)

I have taught them other Creative Things….

By way of Helping this Aunt Upcycle, Rehab and/or Fix!

2016-10-23 15.07.31

I got these old, Ratty, painted gold Chairs for Free. I thought this would make a Good Learning project for my Brother’s Kids!

20161019_162205

I was surprised, because ALL three, even the 15-year-old brother, got into it!

The took Apart the ratty seats with disintegrated Foam and weakened zig-zag Wire coils.

20161022_151420-1

And with the h=Help of Uncle, they Built the Seats back up Again!

20161023_105139-1

They Added Batting to the new foam, again, with the help of Uncle, and of course, Under my Direction.  I was solely Only the Project Manager on This Remake!

20161022_162911-1

Then the new Upholstery was added to the fixed seats!

But we Were Not Done Yet!

20161022_162920

After a Full, but light Sanding, they spray painted the Chairs!

20161023_141525-1

When Dried, they Put the chairs all back Together again.

They were so Proud of Their own work!!

20161023_141352.jpg

So Proud, I just Gave the Chairs to them to use at Home!

And their Creativity has not Stopped There!

My Brother was Gifted a box of old scratched up 45 Records.

20170604_145741

My 15-year-old Nephew was inspired by Them!

20170604_145812

He added Record Decor Along to his growing broken Skateboard Collection.

20170604_151822

He Came up with this on his Own and I am one Proud Aunt!

And his 12 years Sisters make this Upcycling Aunt Just as Proud!

20170706_095908 (2)

It started with a Curb Alert Free Stuff Pile where I got to Teach my Nieces Picking 101.  Stop the Car. Get Out of the Car. Take a Real Close Look.  My nieces Loved a couple of Wood Boxes in the Pile.  And Of course I eyed a Mid Century-ish Metal Stand or Table Base.

20170706_095908

They put the wire table together with one of the wood boxes and made a table.

20170706_110312

Then they added a Lower Shelf!  Now they have a Bedroom Side Table that Holds their Pet Rat’s, Ink Spot and Einstein, Cage.

And Speaking of Ink Spot and Einstein…

20170730_101112

The Twins looked up Online How to Make a Rat Cage Hammock and They Made one All on Their Own.

Look Close at the Stitching…Isn’t that so Cute.

Then there was this…

DSC_0446

We Took her Camping and she Whittled a little Man and then added the Moss Hair.

Her Idea and Her Work.

I Love seeing the Creativity Grow in Young People and am Fortunate to be Able to see it First Hand in Some of my Nieces and Nephews.  I can’t wait until my next project with them!

Also, I Feel my Very Own Creating Mode Coming Up.                                                                So, Stay Tuned for my Next Creative Blog!

Thanks for Visiting and Do Please Come Again!
