The floor are now finished. We're just waiting for them to dry.
They turned out beautiful. They have a nice warm glow and are in good shape.
When the house was built, 140 years ago, they likely would never have finished the floors but instead put an oil cloth in the middle of the room and painted the outside perimeter. This is the reason that they are in such good shape.
The floor people took 2 days to sand and seal the floors and then today they put on 2 coats of satin finish.
They are definitely worth the time and effort and expense.
