A: You could but they will not last very long. Pine is not resistant to rot, decay or insects. If you don't want to use pressure treated because of the chemicals. Than I would recommend either Cedar or Douglas Fir. Doug fir is rot, decay and insect resistant naturally and will last outdoors for many years.
A: Dude, Please abide with for a moment. Unless you live on the Atlantic Coast or some other area where salt spray blows against whatever it is you are building, why use lacquer based paint? I can understand if you live on Cape Cod, or the Hamptons or the Maine Coast but otherwise the latex-based exterior premium paint from Benjamin Moore will exceed all of your expectations. It's easier to work with and will last as long as you keep it clean and free of mildew (as you would any exterior painted surface). But, to answer your question directly, sure - in my experience, you can use almost any paint over this product with confidence. The rule of thumb is "oil over latex - not latex over oil." That's what an old-timer told me. Good luck!
