You can paint them and as long as you follow these instructions, including using a sealer, the floors will hold up for a long, long time :-) Of course, you can't be wearing cleats after painting and expect the floors to remain scratchless ;-)

Step 1

Lightly sand the floors that you will want to paint. Before you begin sanding, make sure that the floors are clean and free of any dirt that might have stuck to the floor.

Step 2

Clean the floor. Once you have sanded the floor, you will need to wipe away all of the dust you have created. Use a mop or a damp towel to wipe it from the floor. Allow the floor to dry completely.

Step 3

Tape off the edges of the walls with painter's tape.

Step 4

Apply a coat of oil-based primer. Allow the primer to dry completely.

Step 5

Apply the paint. Allow the paint to dry completely and apply a second coat. Allow to dry completely.

Step 6

Apply polyurethane sealer. After the paint has dried, add a coat of polyurethane to protect the newly painted floor and allow to dry completely.
