The Pub - The Master Swordsman Pub & Inn

Hello everyone,

We are already in mid February!! Time flies so quickly. Hope you are all well. Like always have been busy with so many things but somehow I still find time for my miniatures.  The weather hasn't been helping me. Mother Nature is throwing a fit. Can't wait for Spring and Summer.  

I also wanted to welcome the new followers of my blog. A Big Welcome!

Today I will be sharing with you what I have been up to in the last couple of days. I have started decorating the ground floor of the new project which will be turned into the pub area of The Master Swordsman Pub & Inn. 

The Pub Area
I started off by studying the room. It is a very spacious and I think it would be ideal for a small pub. The staircase doesn't take a lot of space and beside that I will be using underneath the staircase for the storage of the bar. I still have to figure out how I'm going to design the bar shelves and counter which most probably I will be doing myself. 

I wanted a rich looking gentlemen's club for the upper class which were quite famous in the 18th century.  Apart from the rich colors of the wall paper I wanted dark oak wall paneling  and a fireplace to match.


I got a nice bare wood fireplace so I could stain it to match the wall paneling and decorated it with bricks.

After staining the wall paneling and the fireplace I started wall papering the room. I went for a dark pink which is almost like a damask red and chose a marbled tiled flooring which was very fashionable in the Victorian era. 

I wanted to make something a bit different for the staircase. Having the flooring in a marble style tiles I thought it would look nice if the property had a marble staircase. With that thought in mind, I covered the staircase with marble adhesive glossy paper. 

I also added a decorative embossed ceiling paper and cornice for the ceiling. I stained the cornice to match the fireplace and the wall paneling. 

The wall paneling fitted nicely with the fireplace. 

There is still so much I would like to add to the room. I have also added a few decorative wall beams. There is a good chance that the wall beams will be moved according to the decorations and frames on the walls.

Here are a few photos of how the room looks like so far. I think now I have a much clearer picture of what I would like to add to it. 

Hope you like what I have done so far. It's not much but I guess it's a start. This is all for today, Keep tuned for the next update on this project.

Take Care and See You Soon,
