Can bamboo canes, poles or fencing be painted?

 

Yes bamboo poles, stakes or canes can be painted or stained. 

If you want to make your bamboo shine, you can use a clear coat lacquer. Marine paint also works well. You can also stain it, but you will want to let the bamboo weather untreated for a year, before applying the stain, so it adheres better to the bamboo.
