I am starting with Cordelia's room first, primarily because it is the most complete room in the entire house, with the exception of a new light fixture which will come in time (we have a few dozen of those small finishing touches throughout the house).
Below are a couple of before photos. The room was carpeted with a white carpet and had lavender paint that had long since faded. You could see shadows from where photos had hung on the walls and the paint had not faded. Overall it was in great condition, just not to our taste.
We painted the walls a green color which turned out more brightly than anticipated. We ended up really loving the brighter shade of green. We also tore out the carpet and got new outlet and switch covers (the previous covers had a very catholic theme).
Cordelia is hanging out on her bed after a good time playing dress up.
A corner of her room. Sunlight coming through the window and the closet with a pink flower garland that I made while I was pregnant with Cordelia.
Inside of Cordelia's closet. Clothes, storage and the special books (non-board books) that are read with supervision.
Cordelia putting her room to good use. We are using her baby buggy as storage for her stuffed animals.

So there is the first official look at our house. More to come in the following days and weeks. Hope you enjoyed it!
