Marsha,
Thanks for a somewhat tough question.
The products that are most common deck over paints are made for wood and concrete ( in most cases) and has a texture to it. The paint should hold up up as far as adhesion to the wood however the sheen might not look as good on a vertical wall as on the deck and or concrete.
I would recommend to follow the manufactures instructions before attempting.
My recommendation would be to install a good exterior house paint which will cost $25.00 to $50.00 per gallon. Deck paint generally starts at around $50.00 and up.

I hope this helps,
Duane, Moderator Bobvila.com
