How much is in a can of paint?

A lower-quality gallon of flat finish paint will typically cost in the vicinity of $15, but high-end paints can cost as much as $30 or $40. Some designer brands of paint may even cost as much as $120 per gallon. The finish of a paint matters, too.

So, how much is a sample of paint at Lowes?

Through July 18th, Lowe's is offering up paint samples for just 99¢ each (regularly $3.48) – any color and any brand! Choose free in-store pickup if available near you; otherwise, shipping is free on orders of $49 or more.

How much is a gallon of Behr paint?

Behr paint can be found in any Home Depot store and online. Price: $14.48 (quart), $33.98 (gallon) – similar prices to Lowe's. Coverage: 1 gallon = 400 sq. ft. – it “felt” very thin during application and would obviously require 2 or more coats.
