How to Make Brick Mortar Repairs
liquid sander/deglosser (*LOVE!! This worked incredibly well! I applied it to stools at night, then painted the next morning (even tho it says it only needs 'dry time'). It was easy, fast and not messy. Plus, I was unable to scratch the paint off the bottom of the stools, when I tested its adhesion. SOLD! Never. sanding. again. )
You've picked your color, but how many gallons will you need for your room? Calculate the wall area of the room; you'll need one gallon for 450 square feet. To determine the wall area, multiply the height of each wall by its width (don't subtract for doors and windows unless they take up more than half the wall); total the figures for the walls. Add 10 percent for future touch-ups. For two coats, double the number.
Paint Calculator: Multiply the height of each wall by its width = wall area. One gallon for every 450 sq ft.
