The amount Paint to Purchase?

That is an irritating question….A ordinary gallon of paint will cover 350 square feet by and large. Continuously ensure you take a gander at the paint can mark, some paint inclusion will change.

Another significant component is at present on the wall? How old is that paint, what sheen is (or alternately was) that paint? Here in the dry southwest, paint won’t keep going as lengthy.
