Technical: Taking an old white wash finished floor and changing the color to a brown tone or cherry tone gets tricky. You see, as you sand the floor, the floor appears to be cleaned of all old finish as the white stain looks a lot like unfinished wood. However, There are some tale tell signs to watch for as we sand.

Why is this important? Any residual white finish will show up as stark white or very light contrast when stained over thus not producing the consistent staining and gorgeous floor you desire.

Very important to be aggressive with the sanding grits to eat and chew through the finish to get to bare wood. Once to bare wood, now, the normal sanding prep and sanding can occur to prepare for the new brown tone stains!
