I have the time since I work from home and work has been slow, so I volunteered to paint our kitchen..10 X 16. My hubby changed his mind midway through the painting, so I had to change color. Took 3 days. I did most of the painting and he painted and did some touch up work. We spent $126 in paint and supplies which included primer, ceiling paint, primer, three colors, semi gloss for trim and chair rail, assorted brushes, roller covers, and drop cloths. After all was said and done, it looks really good.
I paint in Canada and prices are like that of the State Side. I I I take pride in my work and charge reasonable rates ($1.00 sq.ft.) for an average home interior and price changes a little as heights of walls change, but there are those who so undercut those prices like .30 sq. ft. and that includes paint and we can't compete with those prices. I can compete if I don't prep walls, use the cheapest paint on the market that looks good at first, 2 thin coats no primer but after 1year it looses it's luster and durability, I don't move any furniture, and concern myself with quanity not quality. I understand people are looking for bargains because money is a little tighter but people need to understand we need to be also wise in who we get. Wisdom shop around, don't just go for cheap prices, check these people out, ask what services include. 30% of my business is redo cheap painters work. Advice if you don't want to pay, try painting yourself you might find it fun. Hope this helped. Thanks
"What an absolute joy to work with this company. The Owner/Operator is both an artist and a consummate professional. We needed multiple projects as we were renovating a 60+ year old home while moving in. One project required Judit to integrate five disparate pieces of furniture to accommodate a dining room table we were importing from Sweden. She visited the showroom an inspected the floor model of the table and with that alone she perfectly matched all five pieces (corner china closet, low boy, sideboard, and two chairs) into a flawless dining room where she integrated modern, transitional and mission style furnishings within a singular, sleek presentation. Everyone that we entertain thinks we bought the pieces as a set. Secondly we had a beautiful maple sofa table that I attempted to stain. We needed the table for our entryway. Judit brainstormed a chalk paint solution that retained the beautiful table top but added a modern flair to the body of the table that matched both our extensive artwork and decor. Finally, we decided we wanted to update our kitchen but retain its' character. Judit faux distressed our cabinets and drawers mixing colors to create an aesthetic effect that pulls color from our Brazilian granite counter tops and restored flooring. She went further then just faux painting, she sanded, patched and repaired the old cabinets to ensure they were smooth and renewed. She even stained an island we built along one wall so that it provides contrast to the room. Now our kitchen is exceptionally unique and beautiful. We love older homes and this is our fourth renovation. This is bar none the most professional and exceptionally beautiful work I've had the pleasure to witness. Judit's talent, eye for beauty, and artistic skill as well as warm personality made what seemed impossible, exceptional. We can't express how grateful we are to have found A&J Decoration Restoration."
Although painting a room sounds easy, it can be difficult for inexperienced individuals to coat a room evenly. Too much paint and bubbles start to form, while using too little paint can leave sections pale and off-color. Hiring a professional interior painter near you can eliminate these problems. Plus, a pro can offer color and paint type suggestions, ensure that paint doesn't get on your furniture and floor, and may be able to offer specialty finishes and patterns.
Pricing by the square foot for painting walls is typically between $1.75-$2.00 based on the floor plan, which equates to about $.55-.75/sq ft of overall wall space. So a 10x10 bedroom would typically cost between $175-$225 for the walls alone. Ceilings are generally between $.75-$1 a square foot, so another $75-$100, and trim should cost at least $1 a linear foot, but prices up to $3 a linear foot are pretty common, so trim for that 10x10 room would add between $75-$200. And doors should cost between $20-$50 per side.
Whether doing it yourself or hiring someone, buy the best quality paint you can afford; it lasts longer and in some situations requires only one coat of paint instead of two. Painting a room usually involves prep work, primer and latex or alkyd paints with a range of finishes. HGTV.com gives a quick overview  as well as a list of painting dos and don'ts .
I have no workman's comp or liability insuerance, so I charge a little less than the going rate (but not too much less). I an limited to working weekends and nights because of my day job. But otherwise, I try to be very flexible with all my customers. I also explain everything that I can to them about the process, and why certain steps should be taken.

"Rafael was very professional, detail-oriented, pleasant to communicate with (responds promptly, returns calls, confirms appointments) and always showed up on time. He painted my daughter's room beautifully and for a reasonable price (offered pricing with and without paint). His work was precise and without mess. I will definitely hire him again for more painting projects."
