This is the $64,000 question.

If you are a professional painter you would charge your hourly rate + overhead + profit margin + materials etc.

But if you are a DIY, you can't expect your friend to pay top $$$ for a novice paint job.

I would suggest coming up with a good hourly rate for yourself (what you are worth doing this type of work), a good estimate of how long this would take you to complete, and having your friend agree to this price. Then try to paint it out in a timely and professional manner.

What would you pay for a job like this to be done?

Hope this helped.
