Mostly OK.
You need AFCI in bedroom.
You don't need GFCI in bedroom. It is a finished area. You don't need GFCI in finished area except near sink.

While this isn't an electrical issue, remember that the bedroom needs two forms of egress. The existing door and a second door or a window that meets certain qualifications.
