I want to paint, but will it dry in this freezing weather?

Went away for christmas and came back to lovely house only to notice all of a sudden how desperately the place needs a lick of paint. I've figured out what colours I'd like where and everything, but am now worried the cold weather will sabotage my plans?

Cold weather is better for painting than warm (unless you mean outdoors? )

Paint goes sticky & dries too fast in warm weather.

That should be fine then - if you keep your house at sort of 19 degrees-ish your paint should be really happy
