How many gallons of paint do you think I should get? Its 2 1/2 inch casing and 3 1/2 baseboard. Would a 5 gallon bucket be enough?

4 - doors
Baseboard for the bahtroom, laundry, family room, and bedroom

It's easier to figure out than you think. Let's assume average 3" wide trim. That's 1/4 foot. You've got 360 feet, 1/4 of that is 90 square feet. 1 gallon covers about 300 square feet. Double it for doing 2 coats, add in your square footage for your doors.
