How do I get my already existing light oak hardwood floor to look exactly like this with a clear finish?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Thanks so much for the info. I called SW paints. SW told me to strip the existing polyurethane, sand to natural wood, restain with color similar to winter white or whatever
I choose, then paint on clear coat overtop. Thanks for helping!

Yes this is a pine floor as I have. I used an oil base stain called opal, it is a Swedish product, very sheer and expensive ( but given to me) and I am not home to find the can and label for you sorry....I did three coats, the third coat left a nice sheen, but do not leave any spots or streaks the white will show mistakes. My wood was bare to start with. I would not use a white paint as it will be chalky looking. When I did use white paint to match some trim I added a couple drops of black to get the right tone.....and wiped it off right away. So get the right color and yes as shead find a stain....and the oak will probably be darker....

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Thriving in Student and Studio Housing
DRAPE. Though this room is beautiful and obviously not student housing, it shows how a simple draping over a table can create a simple elegance--perfect for covering a questionable piece of furniture, creating elegance for small apartment parties--and providing an appealing alternative to (shutter briefly with me:) mini blinds.
Add comfort to wood chairs with removable seat cushions.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Design 2011: Trends to Build On
Here rustic elements are seen on the floor and chairs, while the chandelier brings in a refined elegance. The room is also light and fresh, with white walls, which brings me to another trend I'd like to see more of in 2011.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Swedish
Style Secret: Open SpaceSimplicity drives the Swedish aesthetic. Open space streamlines the overall feel of a home, provides the impression of breathing room and helps to alleviate the oppressive aura that can set in during those dark winters. When warm (well, warmer) weather does arrive and the doors and windows are thrown wide, openness also helps breezes circulate as efficiently as possible.How Swede it is: The dining room here represents a slightly more modern take on Swedish decor, but its expansive feel is a major reason that it remains true to the style's essence. Ceiling beams painted the same color as the ceiling visually lift the space, while blond wood flooring seems to stretch indefinitely.

I think it all depends on the wood species and the stain that is used. I'd go to Sherwin Williams and look at the different wood stains they have that have been applied to your wood species, because it will look differently on pine and oak. I think that this color is often used for pine applications. SW's Winter White might be a good starting place, though.
