how to paint a bamboo floor

If the bamboo is t damaged you can put new flooring right over top
I wonder if it would work better if you sanded down the floor some before attempting to prime and paint?
You might have some trouble getting the paint to stick. Sanding and restaining them is a great option if they’re not a laminate. I would not put another flooring material over them as that’s a recipe for trouble. If the bamboo floor fails, it’ll ruin the new floor, costing you twice as much.
