Q: I am a renter and my kitchen has a pretty ugly wallpaper boarder on it. I would like to just put a wallpaper border the same exact size right over it. I really doubt the landlord will notice the difference or care. The only issue is that I cannot find any attractive wallpaper borders. There are a lot out there with mystical wolves on them, which is cool, but this has to be something my landlord will be okay with.
I do not want to even try to take it down because I'm an extremely busy student. I rarely make lasting changes to my apartments just on the principle that any increase in value should be done by the landlord, but I like to find sneaky little ways to make things look nicer. So, are there any attractive wallpaper borders (6 3/4" tall or more)? Also, you can see my curtain is green with light teal accents, so it would be cool if the border looked good with it.
