Re: need ideas on how to paint
Probably the easiest thing to do will be to use the ladder and get up onto the "shelf", then you can simply cut the wall/ceiling line with a paint brush, no tape required. If you can't get up there, then get yourself a painters shield and a long stick, tape the stick to the shield handle to extend it, do the same with a paint brush. Have a helper hold the shield while you run the brush. Don't use a very wet brush when using the shield or you'll force paint under it.
