It's a tale as old as time (well, as long as leasing agreements have been around): You find a rental apartment or house you LOVE...but you're not allowed to paint the walls. Perhaps the walls are white or beige and you find them ho-hum. Or perhaps your rental walls do have color — but not color you like. What's a rule-following tenant supposed to do? You could paint anyway (we won't tell), but if you want to add the color you want without a paint brush (and get your security deposit back), take some notes from these three fabulous rentals.
