Shoe Mould

We got shoe mould (quarter-round) installed this week to go along all the baseboards in the house. It had been removed when the house was carpeted, so I had to purchase new pieces to paint/stain. I hate finish carpentry because of my lack of patience so I hired out the actual installation.

Below are pictures showing the installed moulding, its nice to have the gaps finally covered between the floors and the baseboards.

I also got all the white ceiling registers back up. Brian also striped and painted all of these, they look great, and with all layers of excess paint removed they now easily slide open and closed.
We have also finally starting to hang things on our walls. My parents gave us this antique mirror which fits perfectly above our buffet.
I bought Karina a picture of Fargo's city hall from the 1926, this is a year before our house was built and in all likelyhood the builder would have gone here to get the building permit.

In the 1960s it was unfortunately torn down in the urban renewal era and replaced with a terrible looking fire station.
Below is a picture of current city hall which replaced the one above. The picture is from google streetview because I couldn't find any picture of it online...which isn't surprising since it would be hard to expect anyone to actually put forth the effort of taking and posting a picture of such an ugly "civic" structure.
