However, I have also pulled out a carpet and laminate floor tiled a bedroom in college. But slumlord management companies on college campuses don't seem to care about changes.


Fess Up: Have You Ever Painted A Rental Without Permission?

Jeez, I've lived in a "paint ok" rental only to have them not return my security deposit when the white we painted the walls back to upon leaving was deemed "a subpar job." It was totally ridiculous considering he had to re-paint everything anyway with new tenants and was likely just a scam to not have to return a deposit. From then on, every apartment has stayed white!!!

Don't paint the trim!!! Give the trim a little TLC and then just paint the walls white/a more vibrant color and the house will look way more bright/fresh without sacrificing the integrity/beauty of the original wood!!

More modern furniture will also serve to liven it up.

I love this! I really need to ditch Lakeview for other areas of the city. Also, I have the same mirror that is hanging in the bathroom - weird. My parents had it for 20+ years before I stole it.

chicago's resale shops are clearly very over-priced. i've yet to score an amazing deal on anything and never see any items of such quality!
