sealing/protecting wooden planter?
I hope I'm posting in the right forum!
My son and step dad made a bench planter for my deck, I just LOVE it! I am not sure how to use it, however. I could put pots inside, but I'm not sure I'd like the look of round pots inside a square box, and finding square pots that would fit perfectly might be a bit of a challenge. I was curious if I could paint the inside of the boxes with something to protect them, then drill holes for drainage in the bottom? I'd considered two things...I don't know how much the first option would be...but that spray on bedliner stuff, or, roofing tar stuff. We used to use this sort of tar in our old galvanized livestock tanks when they'd get a hole in them, and eventually, when we would get a new tank, we'd just paint it on to help make the tank last longer, to keep it from rusting. So I'm wondering if either of these options might work, or if you all have any other ideas?
