It takes approximately one hour to paint about 6 - 7 sq. metres of surface like a wall.  It take a bit longer to paint clean, bare wood or plaster.  You can reckon on covering about 5 sq. metres in an hour.

So an ordinary size room is likely to take you somewhere between 5 - 6 hours to apply one coat of paint. 

Then you must allow time for that coat to dry before applying a second coat.  Allow four hours for water-based paints and overnight for oil-based paints.
