Ideas For Covering Windowsills in Rental?

Good Questions

Q: Hello! I live with my fiancee in a spacious 1 bedroom apartment that we rent. We are looking to stay long term, as it's a lovely place and in the area we live, prices for buying are completely out of our range. Ive decided to start painting and making this place ours (thanks Apartment Therapy!) — however, I'm stumped on these windowsills.

Does anyone have an idea for how to cover them that we can remove later on when we do move out? I don't mind spending a little. Painting them is out of the question, and they are so ugly! My home (once painted) is a dark grey/light grey theme with whites and blacks and espresso furniture. I live in Canada. Thanks all!
