Apply light heat to your wood floor using a hand-held torch. Don& 39;t leave the heat in one area too long and try to burn the floor in patterns that look natural such as with the wood grain; however if you wish you can burn circles or dots to make the floor look industrially aged. You may also choose to burn some areas a little deeper than others.

How to Make a Plywood Floor Look Like a Hardwood Floor Hunker
Although you want the finished floor to resemble wood grain leaving the plywood grain exposed will belie the painted effect you create because the grain of some sheets runs perpendicular to the the painted grain. To hide the plywood grain mix dilute floor-leveling compound and spread it over the whole floor using a 6-inch drywall knife.
However you could be removing any sort of floor covering and replacing it with burnt plywood. For carpeting start by using the shop knife to cut up the carpet into sections and pull it out. Take care around the edges of the room as that’s where the tack strips are.
