    Colored masking tape? Crazy awful. A nail hole can be filled and few apartments don't allow hanging. Temporary removable wallpaper is great…just not these examples. Worrying about a tiny nail hole or paint the floor? Omg….

    Temporary is the key word. Painting the floor is not temporary!

    Hi Jen, I was surprised to see you on here, I use to watch you all the time when I had cable! Any way Iโ€™m a renter & I want to take cheapest way out of this project and thatโ€™s the kitchen floor which is pretty lg. The individual old tiles, like1980โ€™s. What would you suggest? Table is grey & white marble with black large legs. Walls & cabinets all white with pops of reds, grays & black. Please help๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

    No nails, ok fine. I use stainless steel sewing pins, the ones without plastic or glass heads. When tapped almost completely into the sheet rock at a steep angle (60ยฐ-70ยฐ) I can easily hang 5-7 lbs. Too much exposed pin will bend. The tiny pin hole left behind can barely be detected. Once I smooth it over with a dot of premade spackle in a jar, the pinhole is virtually undetectable.
    Anyone who believes you need a fat nail to hang a 16×20" picture is falling for marketing hype. I've used this technique for over 30 years and I've never had a picture fall.
    PS. I've never been denied my security deposit. [Confession: I've been known to patch nail holes from previous tenants, if I don't reuse them. One 3oz jar of spackle has lasted 15-20 yrs]

    The butterfly prints look cheap, the plastic is warped the tape is just ripped. They sell a putty that holds a lot of weight, buy that.

    I still nail stuff to the wall. If landlords are expecting that, they are crazy.

    great, useful tips and ideas to personalize your rental space which would otherwise maintain a generic elementary aesthetic

    The tape suggestion is stupid and looks horrible. The rest is all just common sense.

    Great tips! Have you guys considered doing a video on lighting solutions for renters in older homes or apartments that don't have a lot of built in lighting fixtures? We recently moved into a gorgeous well maintained/restored townhouse, the only issue is we have almost no lighting related wiring for things like pendants or sconces and we are dying to bring more light to the space without having wires all over the place! I know we're not alone, but there's not much content out there on this issue.

    If you are renting, and don't have access/control to or the ability to turn off the power to the fixture you wish change out what do you do?
