They're in!

And I love 'em!

We were able to (with the help of a good friend) finish putting in the wood floors this past weekend. They're acacia. Giraffes eat the leaves of acacia trees. Giraffes have good taste.
My favorite part of the flooring is the color and variance in the wood grain. Plus, they are distressed, so when we accidentally distress them, it won't stick out like a sore thumb.

It really was an exciting project and gave our home a beautiful facelift. And now the grungy carpet in our high-traffic areas is GONE!

Bill updated the baseboard moulding as well (although we have not caulked or painted yet):

Hopefully, we will soon be able to build the arch in the dining room entry and then we can choose paint colors...and once we choose paint colors then we will find a couple area rugs.

But while the rugs are not there, you can bet I've been trying to see just how far I can slide down the hall in my socks.
