I have a room with a sloped ceiling, at the highest point it is 14 feet high, and I painted it myself a few months ago. I was going to buy a little giant ladder, but renting a ladder was very inexpensive. I rented a 10 foot folding ladder . The ladder had to be the folding kind since there was not a wall to lean an extension ladder against. I ruled out using a long pole since there are recessed lights, skylights and a ceiling fan. I didn't think I would have enough control to cut in properly. One thing I found helpful - using a bucket and screen, hanging the bucket from the ladder. It wasn't that difficult. The hardest part was getting the ladder out of the truck into the house.

i've had houses with both functioning and non-functioning wood fireplaces. all were either painted black inside, or black from soot. the black was like a big black hole that sucked in light. I took a stretched canvas and painted it pewter with metallic paint and put it against the back of the firebox. the canvas reflected a bit of light and could be removed to use the fireplace.
