That's a great idea.

My father in law, a professional house painter, caught me using masking tape in my house. "What are you doing with THAT?" he boomed. "You're wasting time. All you have to do is paint up to the edge and stop painting!" With very little practice, that method works surprisingly well. But if you are not a professional house painter, the masking tape can make the task less of a chore.
