My custom build

Looks like a nice setup! Let me know if I can help, I custom built an 8ft enclosure from top to bottom from scratch.
I could use your experience and guidance! Im clueless but think I've found a piece similar to this that I want to use and refurbish... again FOLLOWING THIS THREAD>
 
I feel like a cool draining system could be holes sawed into the size of the pots of the plants I want to use, and the pot will hang on and be secured into the hole by the "lip" of the pot. Then to drill holes in the pot and have a pan/bowl to catch the water. Do you guys think that is doable? It would be hidden by the "shelf doors"
 
Sorry to impede into this thread. . I just really want to get started and its nice to have people that have experience and are going through the same process.
 
Here are some of the pictures of the china cabinet I am interested in. The dimensions are listed on the first photo. I would pair this giant with a the Arcadia quad light system. (Last Pic)

Okay I removed the doors. I am going to screen in the whole area. Put a side door in.

I have been helped and decided to use flex seal for drainage and seal bottom of cage. Just ordered it today. I will be painting the interior brown or Forrest green . I am standing it down as well. Plumbing and water proof is next followed by cutouts for cage.

Here is seen where I made a basin. I will be dealing all corners as well once sanded. Stay tuned

@Leighfisher959 I’m not trying to fuss you but go start your own thread. You will get the same help we’re giving ChamFreak. Discussing multiple builds in a single thread gets confusing fast!

That is going to be sweet!! I put a 4 inch deep sloping towrds the middle french drain and put plants in it filled with 1 inch rocks the plants use all the runoff as fertilizer and put branches along the top and sides and tied other branches and pots to them, with enough branches holds plants at different levels, that system maximizes the amount of space your cham can be in

Update

Finally have a day to work on cage. I sealed all cracks, put flex seal clear all over inside. I plan to paint the inside then re seal it. I put flexseal white on bottom, coat 1 and will do another coat this weekend .

I will be cutting out the areas this weekend as well.

I put the plants in ceramic pots with river pebble as well.
