Drilling the holes definitely isn't a problem. My problem is managing/controlling the water that drains out after watering. My little 8" pots aren't a problem because I can fit a few of em in each tray and then I can dump the tray or let the run off evaporate. I use a carpeted bedroom very successfully but it does have its limitations.
I have a square 4gal bucket. I use one of those rectangular/square aluminum food trays that you put a little burner under to keep food warm at a party.

I use 2 5 gal buckets one inside the other. When I hear water start dripping I stop watering, wait 15 mins and dump the bottom bucket.
This man has the smart.
I know another guy that does something similar but his bottom buckets are all connected by tubing to one reservoir to collect his runoff.
