How much paint / primer should I get?

Rate this topic

5 posts in this topic

Give or take a few feet I need to get enough primer to do an area about 1100 sq ft. I don't think it matters but it's 2 bedrooms 2 baths and a fat landing. Walls and ceilings on raw drywall. How many gallons?

primer 4 or 5 cans or so since you get 200/300 square feet per can

paint 3 cans, paint covers 400 ft per gal.

 

I think Benny Moore has a paint calculator on their site.

For raw drywall: 5 gal pail of PVA primer, 3 gallons ceiling paint, 2 gal color for each bedroom, 1 gallon color for each bathroom.
