It is difficult to know how much paint to buy until you know how many coats of paint it will take to completely hide the existing color.  Most paint manufacturers recommend you apply a gallon of their paint to 400 square feet (that would be 20' by 20') of smooth, sealed surface. If you were to apply one gallon to 200 sq. ft. of smooth surface in one application, then you would have applied the paint twice as thick as the manufacturer recommends. I recommend you buy less paint than you think and make another trip to the paint store for more paint, rather than over-buy and be stuck with more paint than needed. If you do see that you will need more paint, try to stop painting at a natural break- point, incase the new can of paint is not exactly identical in color to the paint you all ready applied.
