Is it safe to use paint on the exterior of the planter box?


I'm building a planter box this afternoon with some douglas fir. The inside will be lined with 6 mil plastic. Is it OK if I primed the exetrior with some Krilz then painted with any exterior paint? Should I worry of any chemical leaking into the soil?

Should be more than fine and I would wash the plastic before you put it in against the soil.
