    Looks like you could comfortably fit a couple of these on one shelf. (Check the dimensions on the bottom of the link.)

    but the shelf itself is the problem.. with those, the water would still get soaked in. I probably forgot to mention, I use an ultra sonic fogging humidifier to water and keep up the humidity.

    Oh, I didn't realize that.
    What about some kind of wood stain to prevent water from seeping in?

    don't have any.. * I've got to use stuff from around the house. That's why I was thinking that maybe a trash bag around the shelf would work.

    Well so much for the first time! Sorry to hear about your problem! That particle board is going to start warping and continue to mold. I would get rid of it (if you can). Since your space is not sealed (and wasn't ment to be) your fix is going to be difficult. Do you have a large piece of plastic? You could wrap the whole inside of your chamber in it. I think your going to have to dial in your humidifier, and have it run less (it's just way to wet). Seal in your mirror sides with silicone. You should replace the other wood sides ande replace with glass or plexiglass. Plexiglass is much easier to deal with if you have the tools to cut it (plus you would be able to see your plants). I would replace the bottom also if I were you. I'm sure you can keep "trying" to seal it and it will continue to give you problems.

    that's exactly what I want to do.. but I just don't have the money for it right now. So I'm stuck using household items.

    Well then large pieces of plastic are going to be your friend until you get some cash money. It's not going to solve the fact that there is a lot of water created in your space. Try covering in plastic as best you can and then turn down your mister. You don't need to use it for watering. You can hand water and have the mister run less.

    But I use 1:1 LFS, perlite and the water runs straight through. Hand watering would probably be worse IMO. And my mister only has 2 settings.. on and off.
