    ok.....what project? As far as how much paint I'm horrible at math...but you need to calculate the total area to be painted. I think it's ht X width...the dude or dudette at the paint counter would know how much paint it would take for x area. Don't go cheep on the paint...you want it to cover in 1or2 coats not 5.

    25,000 gallons. As far as where--its up to you.

    Also depends on surface, if its old wall board/wood or your going from darker to light your going to have to prime it first, to get good coverage.
    Here is a paint calculator.... https://www.glidden.com/how-much-paint-do-i-need
    Don't get super cheap paint, cause you will wind up using 2 to 3 times as much to get coverage and depth of color desired. I recently did a job for a client who got $14 gal paint in pale blue over white, OMG took 3 coats, argggh, and had to go back to store to get more
