It seems like, for most people, a stepping stone to home ownership is renting. It’s probably safe to say that most of us started out our adult lives as renters and many are still renters for various reasons. Living in a rented space was the norm for me as I was growing up, since my dad was in the military. I also experienced renting for the first six years of our marriage and now I’m experiencing it again as I’m renting the studio space for my business.
For those of us who love decorating, renting can be frustrating. We want the option to customize our space, but usually we’re not allowed or it’s not worth the time and money to make improvements to a space that isn’t ours. There is a lot you can do in a rented space, though…everything from peel & stick wall paper to starching fabric on walls and hot gluing a backsplash in place. And that is what we’re rambling about today…
In the video, I mentioned that my mom starched fabric on the walls in our military housing. I used that trick in our master bedroom (yes, that’s fabric) and you can find the full tutorial HERE.
What are some of your favorite ways to make a rented space feel like home?
