How To Improve Front Door of Rental?

Good Questions

Q: Hey there Apartment Therapy fans! I was wondering if I could get your input. I live in a cozy lil' studio apartment in a circa 1920's 3 flat. My bed faces the front door and as I lie there at night I stare at this rather sad looking door, with yellow-y orange glass window panels that glow brightly from the outside hall light when my lights are turned off. It's the last thing I see before I close my eyes and I kind of hate it. Any suggestions on inexpensive ways to spruce up this shabby door that won't offend the landlord? I would love to hear your suggestions. Thanks!
