so, it is finally done. the lowes guys came out and got the flooring and the baseboards in. we have to go back and touch up paint, but it's so nice to have a floor to walk on after two weeks of looking at concrete and drop cloths! we love it....it is so soft, warm, and generally just good looking. i still need that floating shelf and a lantern to hang on the wall, but other than that, it's done.
