Permission and Materials
We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to get permission before doing any DIY project in a rental property. The building isn’t yours and your rental agreement likely spells out what you can and can’t do. If there is something you want to do, ask your landlord and if they say no, consider a project like this DIY wall art or unique air plant planter to satisfy your desire to DIY.
If you do get permission to do a project, it’s also important that you discuss who will pay for the materials. Work this out with your landlord up front so it isn’t a problem when you’re ready to move.
