Q: I really want to paint or stain my ceilings white because the natural wood doesn't really match my decor — it's kind of shabby chic/beach cottage, and I'd really prefer white or light wood. The problem is that my ceilings are so tall. How would I do it exactly? I'd like something like the white ceilings shown on the right.
