Old wooden barn?? you could be looking at oak timber... I would use something in the lines of sadolin wood stain rather than the cheap "fence" paint

As TC said the better the product, the longer it will last, but if you want cheapness fence paint is ok.

For a wooden barn, I would recommend using Sadolin Woodstain as this will last for years to come as long as it has been prepared correctly.
