We just had a screened in porch added to our home. I live in the mid-atlantic region and have relatively hard winters and hot/humid summers. My plan is an "old glory" theme for my room. The decking will be stained in a redwood stain to match the existing decks and I wanted to do the walls (T-111) in an antique white. I'm not sure if I can get a whitewash stain, or if I should use exterior antique white paint. Also, not sure if I should use oil base or latex, and if I should prime it or not. Can anyone suggest any products for me. Thanks

Wonder - use paint.

Definitely prime - and two coats of finish.

Glidden Ultra-Hide Gripper is an excellent primer for T-111. Topcoat with two coats of Glidden Evermore Exterior Satin.

Both are available at The Home Depot
