Fired contractor

I recently hired a painter to paint my inside of home. i paid him 50% up front for the job. We signed a contract for the job. We agreed on a start date that was changed once before without much notice. we agreed on a second start date. He and his crew showed up hours late and only worked a few hours. The work was terrible. The second day he showed up with half the crew and wanted to do alittle work that day and put off project for 5 more days because he was tired. I said that wasnt out agreement and that i needed it to be done within our said time frame because of other projects already setup to be done. He got irate with me and walked off the job. I tired calling him several times to see about my money due to me. He left a message on cell phone stating that there was over $600 in paint in the garage. I went to see and there was $350 worth of paint (found out from paint dealer). and he said he did $400 of work in 4 hours on first day. my question is what can i do to collect and money due to me?... and is it worth going to court over $600 due to me.....
