There are 5 rooms: living room, kitchen, hallway, bathroom, and bedroom. All on one floor. The total footage is 530 square feet. Two coats and day apart. Proper edging where the ceiling meets the wall using "Frog" tape if necessary (insulting to some painters, but I want a solid edge). Labour only.

With taping and draping it would be anywhere from $1500-$2000.

Paint on top of what? Oil? Latex stucco spray? What type of paint do you want put on? New color, old color, same color? Is there oily residue from cooking on the kitchen ceiling? Why labour only? Does the painter have to use an inferior product purchased by you? Many questions to answer before an accurate quote can be given.
