The trim is shiny, lacks nicks, divots, holes or blemishes and it’s amazing it survived so well this long.
I grew up in an old farmhouse with the original wood details that my parents worked hard to restore to its original glory after some of it had been painted a dark brown. Our only problem is when we rip out the carpets and put in wood floors…I want the floors to match the dark wood and HWMMS is thinking lighter. I get exactly why you would never paint your trim – and you are incredibly lucky to have this treasure in your character home. Jessica, Congrats on a great decision NOT to paint over your fabulous old growth original wood! I just found your blog last night, and I know this post is almost a year old, but it helped me TREMENDOUSLY to see my home in a new light.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your house photos and thoughts on stained wood trim with us!
All of the trim in our house is original, meaning it was put in, in 1900 when the home was built. If you are deciding on a stain color, definitely test some out on scrap pieces of wood and see what you like best. I can remember friends remodeling an old home and working very hard to take off all the paint and stain the trim in the early ’80s.


Your home wood features are gorgeous and explains why I believe it is a crime to paint any wood feature in a historic home. You can easily test for the type of finish on the trim with a Q-tip dipped in denatured alcohol and rubbed firmly on the finish. I have been stripping paint and refinishing my house's trim (from 1907) and like you have painted sash. Circus PeanutWe also used shellac on our douglas fir trim we rescued from 60 years of bad paint jobs.
In a design world filled with white, my wood trim is the rare minority and I love that about it. We have dark wood in our home too and it kills me to see every photo on the net (when researching paint colors) with white trim!
Thanks for making my day Yes I try to balance the dark wood with lighter colors, specifically in fabric and furniture. I’m trying to use Behr creamy mushroom fir my kitchen walls against honey oak trim, cabinets etc. It would be tragic to paint over all of it and I’m so glad to hear someone else talk about bucking the trend of painting everything white. I’ve been looking for wood trim ideas because my house is 60 years old and it has beautiful dark wood that was painted over in white.


I found your site on pinterest while looking for paint ideas for homes with dark wood trim. Houses of this age are hard to come by {or nonexistent} in many cities and have unique features and characteristics that are not found in new builds. Wood trim makes way more sense in the mountains than in the city, but it’s also only pine. The paint colors are awesome and complement the wood trim so nicely, giving it a nice light airy feel. I live in a 1906 Bungalow with all original wood trim as well, and it’s so hard and rare to find photos of homes with wood trim like ours.
We want to paint some of the trim to give it an updated look, but don't know where to stop.
I love the fact that those people loved this trim as much as we do and am thankful it’s not painted.
