Apollo1,

 

A gallon of paint on average will cover about 300 square feet. Your 8x10 area is about 80 square feet, so would need about a quart. However, just filling up one's roller takes some of that quart. To be safe, a couple quarts would be neccessary. You may actually need to do more than one coat, depending on color selection and wall conditions.   If the walls are very dry, additional paint would be needed. Unfortunately, the price of 2 quarts is almost the price of the full gallon, so that the full gallon is the better value.

 

Hope this has helped.
