What are you painting?
Is it bare wood?
Is it pressure treated?

Exterior paint comes in many different sheens much like any other paint. Yes, you can paint the exterior with a Satin sheen. Make certain it's exterior paint though. Otherwise, you're gonna have a mess on your hands.

Should I wear a hat or eat Corn Flakes? Your alternates don't go together. Any time wherin the nights are longer that the hours of daylight is not a good time to paint outdoors..
