Cheerful Projects for Renters

As renters, we have to be especially creative when it comes to decorating due to restrictions imposed by landlords. I’m challenged to find ways to infuse our home with colour and personality without touching the walls!

Our house was recently sold and I’ve been motivated and energised to tick off a bunch of my DIY jobs before we have to move again.
