should I paint my coldframe?
I've built a coldframe out of pine boards and an old window. I'd initially intended to leave the wood untreated, and accept the shorter lifespan, but then I bought galvanized hardware, and started to consider that it might be nice to go the extra mile so that it lasts longer.
Is there any reason that I shouldn't paint my coldframe with exterior latex paint? Is there something else I should use instead?
