Blogger Medina Grillo,
author of the upcoming book
Home Sweet Rented Home
, is no stranger to getting her hands
dirty. In fact, she’s been showing her readers various ways to
make affordable, DIY changes to their rentals since 2015. More
recently, though, Medina’s taken all she’s learned and applied
it to the entryway in her own apartment.

Since the space is the first thing visitors see when they enter
the rental, Medina wanted to put a unique twist on it. To get
started, she tackled the accompanying staircase that rises mere
feet from her front door. An accent that once held a forgettable
runner, all 13 steps are now bold and black and host a DIY
stenciling technique that has them each numbered. “Every time I
climb the stairs I find myself counting to myself,” Medina
says.

The staircase shares the spotlight with a large wall that
previously stood undecorated. It was large, white, and noticeably
barren. Post renovation, however, it stands out thanks to the
addition of a trendy topographic wallpaper (removable, of course)
and a floating IKEA cabinet. The latter proved finicky to install
and make level, but after a few attempts it finally settled into
place. From there, Medina went about accessorizing and decorating
the nook in order to make the space flow into the aforementioned
staircase, her living room and beyond. It’s quite the
transformation, so scroll down to see more. Enjoy! —Garrett

entire wall to be wallpapered, but when Medina priced out the
design it was too costly. She’s instead created a chair rail out
of wallpaper, saving herself hundreds of dollars.
