I really need some help thinking of ideas for covering some windows and also mirrors that are on bifold closet doors. We're going to be renting and can't hang curtains but some of the rooms in the back of the house don't have blinds including the master bedroom. DH hates the mirrors on the doors with a passion.

Any ideas would be great. Our move has been taking forever and my brain is about fried.

I saw an item on a department store that can be use for hanging items without the use of nails, they have a sticky stuff so it can be mounted on the wall.

Uh, considering curtains are necessary for privacy, I don't think the landlord can legally ban you from hanging some. I would contact your equivalent of the Landlord/Tenant Board (what we have in Ontario) and find out what you are legally allowed to change. I know that here, I can paint the walls if I bloody well feel like it, provided it is a neutral colour that the landlord will not have to paint over once I leave (and the nice thing to do is leave any excess paint for touch ups). A golden wheat colour is ok, while pink is not, unless the landlord agrees to it.

As for the closet doors, what about contact paper, like what TheMistressT did for her fridge? I imagine you'd need a heat gun to remove it in the end, and probably some Goo Gone to get rid of any remaining glue on the glass.

I don't think there is any other better way to cover the windows or doors than curtains or blinds, these are the best in the sense they look good and are affordable too.

I do remember that sticky item(sorry, I don't it's name  Roll Eyes) that stick on wall and can be used for hanging purpose. Use that to cover your mirror and wall with curtains .

look for tension rods to hang curtains.  They fit within the window well, without any holes or hardware.

For covering windows and mirrors then curtains are the best option. You can use fancy curtains, as they will also give a decorative look.
