    Default Best indoor / outdoor barn stains & paint?

    Does anyone have a recommendation for horse-safe wood stain with a varnish? This would be over tongue and groove stall walls, within where the horses live and along aisle walls.

    Also, any suggestions for the best, most weather-resistant barn siding paint? This will be over wood.

    I used Cabot Clear Solutions on my interior T&G and T-111and I love it - really brought out the different wood tones without making it dark. That was 3 years ago and the only places I restained this fall were behind the water faucet and two small sections which get a lot of sun on them.

    The outside wood was painted with exterior paint from TSC - gave pretty good coverage in one coat - only used primer on the white trim, the rest is barn red.

    I used this Behr product in our last barn and was very pleased.

    I love the Behr products.

    I've spent a lot of the past two summers painting cross country and stadium fences and I think the Behr products are great.
