Painting over stairs

I have an area over our stairs that needs to be painted: walls, the trim, and ceiling. My wife is very peculiar about doing any edge work by hand, so I gotta make sure she doesn't fall 20'!

Our stairs are U-shaped, and on the 2nd floor there is a 3' tall bookcase that surrounds the stairs. Attached are a few pics to better show what I mean. We need to paint the green wall on the right hand side (well, all of the green, but the right hand side is the part giving us trouble).

How and what kind of scaffolding can I get to accomplish this? We don't have much money left to spend on renting scaffolding (I can only imagine how much $$$$). But in this scenario- how would you rig up some scaffolding to be safe? It seems like it's nearly impossible.. any suggestions out there?

Many thanks in advance!

I would recommend a Little Giant Ladder
