Finishing the Top Floor: Bedroom & Bathroom

Finishing the Top Floor: Bedroom & Bathroom

The top floor is finished! At least, all the architectural details are done, ready for furniture and fixtures.

The top floor is divided into the bedroom and bathroom. The original plan of the top floor left the stair entrance open, with a small hallway, and then an open doorway into the bedroom. I think that layout works for a private home, but for even the world's smallest hotel, you need a door that closes and locks. Plus, then I have somewhere to hang a 'Ne Pas Deranger' sign!

 

I put in the baseboard, crown molding, chair rail and wall moulding. The 'moulding' over the doors is a jewelry finding that really makes the room. I wanted to try to create a curved, rococo moulding, but the rectangular moulding was so much easier, I had to do it. The birds over the door make the luxurious, feminine look of the room though, which I love. The bedroom door came with the house kit and the door between bedroom and bathroom is the Majestic Mansions Stannford Interior Door.

The bathroom is my favorite room of the house. The wallpaper is a copy of De Gournay wallpaper, printed on matte photo paper. The floor is thick bristol board, painted in gray marble and then cut into 1/8" strips and pasted down in a herringbone pattern. Once I get the fixtures in, the bathroom will probably be the first room to be really finished. The details sometimes seem to take so much more time than the big things!
