  2. Gee LeeAnn on December 20, 2022 at 1:38 am

    I’m working with plaster walls so putting holes and resealing them after isn’t an option. Painting isn’t an option either. It’s an old restored space so I’ll be using industrial grade peel and sticks for all wall decor lol gonna try out wall decals too

    Another great video!!! I’ve never seen the no no blind bracket things. Very cool! Also great tip about what paint finish can accept removable wallpaper/vinyl. There’s another awesome YouTuber named Waynaworld, and she is the queen of peel and stick and removable vinyl!

  12. Cynthia Guinyard on December 20, 2022 at 1:43 am

    👍👍Thank you.. great ideas especially the peel and stick wallpaper.. I was debating on whether or not to do it and I have flat paint.. good save whew 💜💜

  13. Naturally Nory on December 20, 2022 at 1:43 am

    Definitely want to try those stick on light fixtures.

  14. Amanda Johnson on December 20, 2022 at 1:44 am

  18. brwnieeLocs on December 20, 2022 at 1:58 am

    Moving into my first place in 7 days and this video (just like all of your other great videos) came right on time! I never heard of slat wall before and I think I wanna try that. Also wallpaper. I wanted to paint but I don’t think I wanna do it since I’m not sure what exact color the wall in my unit is. It’s white but not regular lol. Wallpaper, slats and lighting. Thanks for this! ❤

  19. AccordingTo CICELY on December 20, 2022 at 2:00 am

    This video was super helpful. I never thought about blank full color wall paper. I normally just hand paint my accent walls. I’ve never heard of slat walls. I’ll have to look into that idea.

  20. Judayah Murray on December 20, 2022 at 2:02 am

    Top-notch, quality video content. I just stumbled across your channel. I am moving in about a month and a half and am happy for all the tips and advice you provide. Thanks!

  23. Ashley Goulding on December 20, 2022 at 2:03 am

    Ok wow this is the first video that I’ve watched which let me know that the type of paint matters for the temporary “removable” wall paper !!

    Now I’m just wondering how you determine the type of paint — satin? 😅

  24. Kenley Wong on December 20, 2022 at 2:04 am

    After watching the Renter Friendly Updates: Apartment Hacks, I had such great respect for you when stressed to be sure to get permission from the landlord before making any changes. But when I watched this video, there were no importance placed on respecting the landlord like asking for permission ahead of proceeding with any desired works. The last thing a landlord wants is a misunderstanding as to why the rental has become unrecognizable during a scheduled fire safety walkthrough or maintenance. Help me understand this shift in demeanor. As a landlord, I have been generous with affordable rent to help college bound kids so they don’t have to worry as I am carrying on a legacy started by my father to be kind through volunteer or service whenever possible. Perhaps my generosity and kindness was interpreted as weakness, that it encouraged the recently exited tenants to free willingly work the premises to their liking without prior consent—a demeanor not in keeping with the rental agreement. This has resulted in permanently altering the theme and character of the rental. While they were here, their unauthorized changes were a detriment to themselves, the property, and to others. You would never think that tech lightbulbs would be an issue but it was. 49 days into construction of the rental after a flood from a dishwasher and the tenant being put up in a hotel, there were several incidences of averted injuries. Only the tenants had knowledge of the tech lightbulb’s extensibility. They went beyond voice command by timing out the bulbs if or when the lightswitch was flipped on. So when contractors flipped on the lightswitch and worked with machinery, the lights would switch off moments later. I had to finally tell the tenant to disengage the feature from the lightbulb so the contractors can continue working without incident. The tenants endangered their own safety by blocking an emergency exit with their loft bed. They may have compromised their own health by drying their washings indoors and not ventilating the place. In keeping with the theme of not ventilating the place, they have managed to produce spores from lichen, moss, and fungus (normally found outdoors) at the head of where they slept. I’m sure this may not be the ultimate horror story. I would like tenants to go through the trouble of getting consent as per the rental agreement. This allows for a study of potential pitfalls before proceeding. Thank you for your time and understanding.

    Awesome vid and tips!! Things that I think about and have concern

  26. yari139 on December 20, 2022 at 2:06 am

    A little things to address. Removable wallpaper also doesn’t work on textured walls either. I think painting is very renter friendly because you can always just paint it back to its original color. So unless you’re planning on painting the whole apartment, I don’t see why you wouldn’t just paint. I’ve always painted and always get my deposit back. Also, if you have textured walls, you can 100% make holes in the walls because when you spackle it and paint it it blends in with the rest of the wall. And I’d be careful putting stick on tiles over linoleum. I did that once and it ripped the old linoleum floor. Luckily my landlord at the time liked it so he was ok with it. Lol. I’ve also been able to cut deals with the landlord. Say I wanted to do something to the apartment that would definitely be an upgrade, say I wanted the kitchen cabinets to look different or get new lighting or plumbing fixtures, I would discuss this with the landlord prior to signing the contract. We would either agree on a lower rent for me to do these updates or I would provide the receipts and they would pay for it up to a certain amount. This only works if you’re renting from the owner directly, though, and not going through a property management/real estate company.

    Maybe you should reach out to Casterly for a sponsor video. I’ve seen them work with other Youtubers continuously.

    This is great 👍

  38. Donnetta Daniels on December 20, 2022 at 2:18 am

    All great ideas , thank you for the information and inspiration!

  39. Anthony D on December 20, 2022 at 2:18 am

    guys.. A small pot of wall spackle is less than $5, it really doesn’t take a lot of effort to cover holes in a wall from art or decor and the results are so worth it 🏡

    Bro. NAAAAHHHH these videos are TOOOOO TOP TIER! TOOO HIGH QUALITY! You need A LOT more recognition!!!!!

    It’s crazy. You have better quality content than some bigger YouTubers. The algorithm is MAAHDD!

  41. Avalm on December 20, 2022 at 2:26 am

    Great video! Is there a way to hang artwork to the walls without using command strips?

  42. jeweledcookies on December 20, 2022 at 2:26 am

    My sister is doing her porch and this ikea decking is a great tip!!!!

  43. McKenzie Kerry on December 20, 2022 at 2:26 am

    Taking all of these tips!!

  44. Grammy's House on December 20, 2022 at 2:29 am

    Be careful with those stick up lights under cabinets. I have tried a couple and they don’t stick for long and come down. I also bought some cool pug type lights with a USB chargeable light and magnets. Yeah, those "sticky" tapes also came off of the wall.

  45. charhew on December 20, 2022 at 2:30 am

    thanks for these tips! i hadn’t thought of these ideas before 😀

  46. Tyrone Marquez on December 20, 2022 at 2:31 am

    Subscribed great channel

  47. ShaLiv611 on December 20, 2022 at 2:32 am

    I’m a renter and my walls are textured. I solved this by using flat tacks and poster board. I put up the poster board with the flat tacks— if the "seams" were an issue, I put clear packing tape over it. From there I adhered the wall paper or peel and stick tile to that. Not only is it renter friendly, it addresses my textured walls and allows me to change the look easily. Or remove it altogether with no damage to the walls.

  48. DIY Brides on December 20, 2022 at 2:33 am

    Where have you been ALL my life? 😍 These ideas are AMAZING….I’m pretty handy but design overwhelms me but these are so simple and just speak to me. I’m def checking out your other videos 🙌🏾

  49. Maverick Moses on December 20, 2022 at 2:33 am

    I did the open shelving in my kitchen by taking off the doors and adding contact paper, and I get sooo many compliments on it.
