I currently have some planks of wire brushed cypress that looks like this:

...that i would like to look like this tone:
Wall Property Floor Wood Flooring


I've tried a number of stains (rustoleum "sunbleached", behr "cape cod" semi transparent, varathane "sunbleached") to no avail. The finish is more of a bluish white tone that looks like paint. The issue seems to be the natural semi dark brown tone of the wood.

Any suggestions?

The color to me looks like a gray pickle finish. A pickle finish is just some thinned down oil base paint you use like stain and wipe off the excess.
