Re: pvc "lumber"
You can paint the PVC to make it less resistant to chalking, fading, etc.
Here is what I did to a tiki bar made out of PVC instead of real bamboo... I roughened the surface of the PVC with 120 grit sandpaper and epoxy coated the PVC with UV stabilized epoxy paint and put knots onto the PVC in various lengths and the epoxy paint has endured for over 6 years and counting.. I put on a UV stabilized satin clear coat over the epoxy and as it fades looks like the real bamboo... although in your case it will probably be a solid white color...
Go for it... show us pics when you're done with the project...
