120 Year old Doug Fir: Lightening & Refinishing-HELP!

Lisa Britz
last year

Hi! We are about to refinish our 120 year old Douglas Fir Floors. They are currently painted a dark grey/brown. I'd like to make them a light Scandi floors with a very subtle whitewash. The quotes I've gotten are all over the place from $4/sqft all the way up to $17/sqft for the work. I'd love some advice on what products are best on these floors and how to achieve the look I want. I've looked into WOCA/ Bona Nordic Seal. Contractors seem very scared to touch the floors given the age. Help appreciated!

This is the look I'd like.. light floors. Other picture is current flooring.
