Hope this is a simple question:
What’s an easy and inexpensive — but reasonably safe, of course — way to create a simple temporary scaffolding for doing work on the interior walls along the stairs — hanging wallpaper, painting, etc.? Ours is an old Victorian house with high ceilings.
Balancing a high ladder on a panel of wood that’s resting on a stack of books seems like a pretty stupid kludge — so there must be a better answer that is commonly used by members of this community!
Thanks for your suggestions.
