Porch flooring dilemma

First time poster, new to the community.
I am looking for some assistance on what to do with my front porch flooring.
Currently, my front porch flooring looks like there used to be outdoor carpeting and someone ripped it up, and the painted the subfloor (poorly). The subfloor isn't very attractive. My house is from 1921, and I have been in the process of restoring some of the character that the previous owner had removed. I really would like some input on what I could place over this subfloor that wouldn't break the bank, but would bring some character back to this porch? Please help! Name:  ewwwww floor.jpg

Do you have access to the bottom of this porch? I would be curious if the original floor is still under there. I would begin by removing the plywood. Then depending what you find under there, you might be able to just lay new 3/4" treated tongue and groove pine, like this..


It works out to about $2.50 sq ft.
