Hi Richie. Why not just figure a days pay for yourself and charge that for labor? If takes just part of a day, consider the additional money as small job fee. I won't even get into the ins. aspect. But be careful. Do you know that one coat will cover the old color?

Sounds low
Course, I guess you shouldn't be charging what I would anyway

But really, It's just like your other business
You'll want to figure how long it'll take you, and how much you need per hour to pay your overhead, expenses, you, and a little profit

I suspect that $150 will still come up short

Keep in mind, even the cleanest bathroom still needs prep
Especially if it's an eggshell or semi-gloss finish (many are)
It will at least need sanding
Certainly the trim will need it
Then they must be cleaned/wiped free of dust
Some baths need primer on the walls also
You'll also need to remove some fixtures and/or switch plate covers
So, there's prep

Also, it's highly unlikely that one coat will do it
I suppose it's possible, if it's the same color and a good quality paint
It's just unlikely
There's no such thing as a "one-coat" paint
