Living in a rent house has it's ups and downs. One downside is that you cant make a lot of changes. We have one super small bathroom that a previous renter did a REALLY bad paint job in. It is really dark and there is red paint all over the trim and doors... and so on.
Luckily, our landlord cant stand it either so I decided to try to paint over it. We have always had to hang pictures in random places and all kinds of mess to cover the flaws so it was time to make the change. I spend less than $20 on paint, brushes, rollers, tape, and new outlet covers. It was so worth it.
