Decorating & Furniture/ceiling painting

Question
I am trying to paint my ceiling. I would like to know what is the best type of paint to use. The size of the ceiling is 8.01cm sq. Could you please tell me what the cost is and what size area the paint will cover  

Answer
I'll talk in gallons and square feet since that's my measure.  One gallon of paint will cover approximately 100 square feet.

Ceiling paint it the same as wall paint.  My preference for ease of painting and for the environment is water-based (latex) paint.  Since latex paint comes in different finishes (degrees of shine) I'd recommend satin or eggshell for the ceiling.

Visit my web site at: http://www.jennifertaylorwojcik.com Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.

Experience

College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
