Depends. How big is your apartment ? How many rooms, wall area, etc ? Calculate how much paint you will need and multiply by its cost per gallon. Then add on cost of brushes, rollers, thinner, drop clothes, etc.

Rent stabilized apartments must be painted every three years if you request it. You and your landlord are free to make your own arrangement where you do the painting and he pays for supplies -- OK if you'd rather pick your own color scheme or you'd prefer to move around your stuff yourself. If you do accept payment from the landlord for painting, you are obligating yourself to actually paint -- so don't lose the money.

: Are there "reasonable and customary" rates at which the landlord must reimburse for a paint job in the event that he doesn't / can't / won't do the job within a reasonable period of time?
