How To Cover Ugly Tile on Built-In Vanity?

Good Questions

Q: My roommate and I just signed a lease for a very cute apartment with a lot of nice features. Unfortunately, the ugly tile covering the built-in vanities/desks in the bedrooms is not one of them. I don't know why anyone would put fake, black granite under such a cheery window (or in a bedroom) but there you go. I've looked at the Apartment Therapy resources for bad backsplashes, kitchen counters, and bathroom tile, but since this is in the bedroom I feel like some different rules apply. I'm a student and this is not a long-term lease, so it needs to be cheap and removable! Thank you!
