Question Help, i'm broke and have faded wood floors

Hi all, I just moved into this beautiful house, but it's old and the wood floors are faded away. I don't have the time, money or energy to sand these floors and stain them and all of that, plus I don't have a clue how anyway. Is there some type of wood stain that I can apply to these floors just to make them look a little better without having to sand them and all of that? Thanks in advance

Nope, nothing that is going to last very long and floor paint cost as much as clear coat finish.

If wood floors have faded or discolored due to exposure to light, to restore to original color will require sanding down to raw wood and refinishing. Keeping curtains and blinds closed when sun is on the side of the house tends to minimize fading or discoloration of wood and fabrics.
