Renter/Landlord Disagreement

I have been renting a house for about 8 months now. When I moved in, I agreed to paint the dining room rather than pay a deposit. There was no set finish date, and no compensation agreed upon if not completed. My landlord decided that since it was not done yet, she would hire someone to come in and paint and I would need to foot the bill. My questions are: since there was no set date or dollar amount, am I liable for this cost, and since this would be considered my deposit money, would I be entitled to be repaid when I move out? Thanks!
