Just got myself a potting shed and I'm wondering what I can do internally to improve the life of the shed.

As we will be growing a few things in there, there will be higher levels of moisture inside than a normal shed and the possibility for regular spills/over-runs of water.

I'm wondering if I should stain and/or cover the floor and staging to help prolong its life but don't want to use something that might have the opposite effect if it prevents the shed from breathing and traps the moisture in.

What would be recommended? I've considered paint, varnish, stain, and vinyl but not sure which is best (if any).

In which case treat any cut ends and worry less.
