I just bought a house that was built between 1890 and 1905. The wood floors had been painted, but I was hoping to sand and stain them. I have since learned that they are a softer pine rather than the oak I had hoped. I was thrilled to stumble on this website when I googled "painted wood floors". Your photos are wonderful and I am reminded of a family vacation to the east coast.

My little house is in Indiana and has much of the original character. I have not had much luck learning about residential architecture of it's period other than Victorian or Georgian homes. My home is much more modest.

As it turns out, the painted floors seem to be appropriate for the time period as well as being more budget friendly.

Thanks for the inspiration.
