**Steve**, Friday, December 6, 2013 at 12:12amFirst off, when you check the measurements, at least read what you wrote before. You had them listed as cm, not m!

so, there are 4 walls:

2(4.8)(2.6) + 2(6.8)(2.6) = 60.32 m^2

and the ceiling: (4.8)(6.8) = 32.64

Subtract 5m^2 for the windows (presumably in the walls, not the ceiling; no mention was made of skylights) and we have

walls: 55.32 m^2

ceiling: 32.64 m^2

Since a liter of paint covers 9 m^2 (**not**9 m!), that means we have to buy

6L of wall paint

4L of ceiling paint
