How much would it cost for labor only, to ready and paint a 20 by 20 living room, including the ceiling?
Not nearly enough information given. Is the ceiling textured? If it is, is it the old popcorn stucco? Has it even been painted? Does the trim, widow[s], door[s] need to be painted? Is there any cracks or screw heads to be repaired? Is there much of a variation in the colour going on the wall? Without any of this information no one can give an accurate quote.
Prices would vary depending on the condition of the walls / ceiling, is the ceiling standard height or is this a vaulted ceiling, stipple or flat ceiling, any water damaged areas or staining etc. Without knowing these things then ball park estimate is that you are looking at 1-2 days of labour (depending on the answers to the above variables) so anywhere from $400-$750 in labour.
