  1. I’ve actually done the contact paper once a long time ago and it turned out fabulously! I’m lucky even though I rent my house my landlord told me I could pain any color I wanted, but lucky me they are already just the way I like them.

  2. I do agreed with you. I rented for 5 years and I know what you’re saying. I never decorated my apartment when I rent because of too many limitations and I just leave with a nothing decorations at my apartment.

  3. I live in a apartment ( a co-op) and we have to watch what we do to the walls also. You have definitely given me some ideas here-I love the one with the canvases covered with fabric!

  4. I don’t rent anymore but think these are amazing options for owners too. I never considered wall decals which provides you the opportunity to make changes quickly.
