White washing a maple floor?
When you refinish a hardwood floor, you sand off the old finish, apply a stain, remove the excess, let that dry, and then apply a protective coating. I've never done a whitewash stain on a floor. But, I imagine you would just use a whitewash instead of the darker stain and everything else is the same. I would suggest, though, that you get a sample piece of hardwood flooring and try it out before committing to the whole floor. BTW - Refinishing a hardwood floor costs about $4 - $5 a square foot, plus an additional 50 cents a square foot for additional protective coatings.
