I'm painting the skirting on my staircase and have a fitted carpet which I don't really want to lift. Is there a neat trick to avoid getting paint on the carpet that won't take me the same length of time it took Michelangelo to paint the Sistine Chapel?

Rough wooden floors: I just helped a friend tear out the mold and flea-infested carpet in her new apartment. Underneath were unfinished, rough, but not horrendous wooden planks (pic 1, pic 2). Money is tight, so we are looking for the cheapest quick-and-dirty method of making the floor livable. Help us think outside the splintery wooden box! [more inside]
