How long is outdoor paint good for?

I purchase my house 3 yrs ago and bought an outdoor paint to repaint the side porch. Well I never got around to doing it but am ready now (ahh too much to do)

Is that can of paint I bought 3 yrs ago still good to use? its been stored in a closet inside the house for that 3 years

Paint is probably still good. Take it to the paint store where you got it and ask them to shake it up for you.

As long as paint isn't subjected to high temps [or latex to freezing] it will last almost indefinetly if well sealed.

As noted it should be mixed well and there is a slight possibility it might be in need of straining.
