I finished out the stair-room today. Oopmh, that was a lot of wood in such a tiny room!
I couldn’t find a mirror, but when I do, I will take a photo behind the stairs pointing up. The trim goes all the way around, on all four levels, even though only dust bunnies will be able to see it. I couldn’t let it be unfinished.
The pattern on the ceiling is very big, but also very non-invasive. It’s pale blue and white, which evokes the feeling of the sky. I’ve done insanely big patterns, such as this, on real-scale ceilings and they always look awesome.
I did the bathroom, too. Again with the ceiling. I’ve always wanted a ceiling like this. I had this paper, waiting for a good use in this house, when I realised I had a use just waiting for it. Yeah! The text is the same colour as the wood stain, too, so it is really tied together. I’m imagining laying in the bath, relaxing and looking up. It would make me smile. Especially works as this room is very tall for its width.
I could use some suggestions from you all. The bathtub is going right next to the window. It will fit longways, so there is no weird gap between the edge of the tub and the wall. I planned the size of the room, for that. I want to make a wooden bathtub frame/surround. I will make the tub-part to fit in it myself, should be fairly easy.
Give me bathroom suggestions! It doesn’t need to be historical, as I’m pretty sure the ceiling is a good indication the room has been remodelled somewhat recently. ;) But it does need to fit within the general aesthetic of the house. As you can also probably see if you look carefully, the planks right at the back aren’t perfect. I wasn’t too concerned, because the tub is going there. I’m also going to mount the tub in permanently—I didn’t put baseboards in this room, because I want them to butt up against the tub.
I was going to work on the tub tonight until I realised I had no plan at all. Aside from just making a box.
It would be especially cool for ideas for the sink/toilet that also utilise wood. (but are realistic!)
