Painting rates usually run in the 35 to 75 cents per square foot range. More for new construction where priming and smoothing of dyrwall is needed. More for certain colors, like certain reds or yellows that might take 3 coats. More for certain special paints, or sometimes glossier finishes. If it's a rectangular room with normal doors and windows, say about 12 x 12, with 8 or 9 foot ceilings, and a color that is not real far off from the original color, I'd charge you roughly $200. Maybe a bit more if that's the only thing you wanted painted in the whole house.
