Common to renters is an accumulation of a mish-mash of various furniture items that have been handed down from family and friends. Throws and slipcovers over worn chairs and couches have a wonderful way of making them brand new.

Different pieces of furniture in varying styles can be brought together simply by painting them in the same colour scheme. Even individual pieces like tables, shelves, and other solid furniture can be completely revived with a fresh coat of paint. Add a pretty stencil to turn a neglected piece of furniture into a treasured item.

Here are some great practical tips on decorating your rented space without breaking the bank.
