Get This Look with Painted Plywood Floors?

Good Questions

Q: We have a room in our new place that has terrible carpet with plywood underneath. It's an old building with exposed wood ceilings and beams so we don't love the idea of laminate and just can't quite afford hardwood right now.

A look we both love is painted white floors like the photo I've attached. Is there an affordable way to achieving this? I assume most of the examples I've been seeing are existing floors painted, but I would love to find an alternative. We have around 220sq feet and a budget under $800.
