"painting" an interior

I have several interior images to retouch. The painting contractor wasn't finished when the photos were made so I have walls with very uneven paint coatings that need to have a "2nd coat" of paint applied by me. Of course, I have to retain all of the form of mouldings, etc. Here are a couple of examples.
I've been trying some layers with blending modes and don't think I'm going in a good direction, yet. I would really appreciate some suggestions.

Thanks

Re: "painting" an interior

First image I would seriously consider reshooting if at all possible when the painting has been finished. If the image is for the web only then it may be worth editing but it would still take many long and tedious hours.

Second image is fairly easy, just a matter of creating masks for all the separate areas that need new paint, sample colours from nearby areas and paint in on a blank layer. Sometimes easier to use a "Solid Colour" layer to as you can easily adjust the hue/saturation without having to refill the layer with a new colour.

Keep a close eye on shading, and also look for noise or texture which you can add to each individual layer to match surrounding areas that are good.

Re: "painting" an interior

Reshooting would be nice, but I think the odds are VERY low of that happening. Maybe, if I can scare them with how much is involved to retouch...

Looking at these, I keep thinking that there must be a way to grab the shading that defines mouldings and edges, etc. Maybe as a 50% gray and dropping it into a new layer, then adding color sampled from adjacent areas?

Dodging and burning to equalize the brightness and then painting on a color layer will certainly take a while on the 1st image. One thing you may want to try on the 1st image is to select one or two of the painted panels and then use Filter > Vanishing point to replace one or two unpainted panels and then fine tune the brightness with a curve.
Regards, Murray

Hmmm - I'll try that, Murray. Thanks
