Renters often struggle with the inability to renovate, upgrade or even tile their homes. Thankfully, some landlords are gracious enough to allow their tenants to paint the walls. Take advantage of this privilege by fainting a faux backsplash in your kitchen. This simple DIY hack not only looks good, but only costs $10 to make. A word to the wise, if you want your security deposit back, don’t use a permanent market in lieu of a paint pen, they are much harder to cover up with paint.
