I have never lost any deposit for hanging art and putting holes in my walls. Ever. Maybe this is a regional thing, but if a landlord is nickeling and diming you in this the rental property.

I laugh at this stuff. Seriously, how hard is it to bring your spice containers? They are small and take up little room as it is. Why make a mess transferring them? And how hard is it really to just take a travel size toothpaste? Pretty damn easy compared to this little DIY. These little DIY's are more trouble than just picking up basic necessities at your local WalMart or camping store.

Have you checked out local art fairs and shows? At the one's I go to annually, there seem to be a lot of glass vendors. Some expensive, some very affordable. Maybe if you found an affordable artist, they could help you? Or...if you have some artistic skills, have you considered taking a glass blowing class? It could be your class project.

I really don't have an issue with anything on the list. Except the fake plants. Kind of. If you really feel the need to have a fake one - it better be a good one. Not a craptastic looking one.

I would never paint Birdseye. I have two Birdseye dressers and I cannot fathom this. And I typically don't mind painted furniture.

Malinainparis - I think it's pretty safe to say that the suggestions made are for long term tenants. Most landlords don't take issue with tenants hanging as many pictures as they would like.

And in regards to children. I have a four year old who at times, can be a challenge. If she is not up for it, I don't go. It's bad enough I have to deal with her, why make others deal with a crabby child simply so I can buy fresh tomatoes that week. It's just not worth it. However, I do love bringing her. Children are a wonderful part of farmer's markets and it's a great way to teach them early the value of fresh food, culture, and buying local.

I love dogs. I do. But I dislike their owners sometimes. Leave the dog at home. Take him to the dog park later.

Marinainparis, I have had gallery walls in numerous apartments over the years and never have I had an issue.

What I think is a god-awful suggestion are the peg walls. I think it's ugly. Ugly. Ugly. Ugly. And then to hang pots and pans and utensils? It's pretty fluttery.

I am in agreement with Charcoal Gray, but that is the only neutral I suggest. Go with that, or a color. Navy is a nice suggestion too. You have enough red/burgandy so don't go that route, but I like the idea of adding color to your sofa. If you do go with a neutral, I'd go bold on your throw pillows that you can change out and switch as your mood changes.
