How much would it cost for labor only, to ready and paint a 20 by 20 living room, including the ceiling?

Depends, are we supplying paint or are you? I could give you better quote after knowing that.

Depending on how much work needs to be done on the walls, between 600 to 1000.

Prep could vary depending on what needs to be done. Basic sand with 2 oats of paint on the walls and one on the ceiling will run about $1,000.

If you're supplying paint we would charge $700.

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.
