Can I really use interior paint for outside use?
I was told (by a pretty knowledgeable sales person) that it’s just fine to use an interior paint for a table that’s outdoors? The table lives on my back porch (screened in very large room.)
The table wouldn’t get very much sun or rain but I do live in Florida, less than a mile from the Gulf. We have A LOT of heat and A LOT of humidity!
I‘ve painted many many things in my time and haven’t ever really thought about interior for exterior and vice versa. I definitely plan on sealer/varnish/lacquer of some sort so it’s not like I’m going to paint and not put some sort of finish on the table. Any info/insight on the paint or sealer would be appreciated. Thanks so much!!

I do this all the time, the only difference it will not stay on as long, you will have to repaint more often.
I was able to purchase the color and quality I wanted from the "oops" paint selection for $9 a gallon. I won't mind needing to repaint a little sooner at that price!!
I have done this, and I use a lacquer spray to seal. I have also used outdoor paint indoors.
I would go with an exterior grade paint. Cost difference is minimal. A lot cheaper than redoing it.
I would not use it myself, I would prefer to use External Gloss Paint or maybe one of the "Shades" colours for garden use on bare wood. Lots of pretty colours!
If you came to this forum, it means that in your life there was a very important event - the decision to repair. Probably the most difficult process is to paint the walls correctly. And not everyone can do the repairs themselves, unfortunately I am one of them.
I love forums. It is on forums that people can learn the real truth about anything. But unfortunately many people write not the truth about some services. And we have to write only the truth, and I'll probably start. I was flooded and I tried to paint the walls myself and as you have already understood I failed. Then I was advised to go to paintingservicesingapore.sg. I contacted the craftsmen and in a few hours my room was completely different.
Thank you for your consideration.
