I make my canopy out of solid Oak, then paint the inside with Bright White Benjmin Moore exterior Latex, for its reflective qualities. (2 Coats) After it is completely dry (24hrs), I then coat the paint with epoxy fiberglass resin (slow curing). Result is Glossy and never molds ,warps, or rots, EVER!!

I have always had good luck coating my stuff with KILZ primer/sealer.
