Answer to hiding an ugly in-wall air conditioner.

This is my idea for disguising an ugly air conditioner behind a custom shelf cabinet combined with a wooden window valance. I am building the other side in duplicate for balance. The unit is actually black, but shown in grey to make details visible.

    Looks like a great idea Therese but won't that block the air flow for the a/c unit??

    This looks great, Therese. Nice design. Like that you are doing duplicate. Wow! You expect us to learn how to do this on our computers??? Me???

    That is why I am installing doors over it...they will be open when the air is on and closed to look like just a cabinet when the air is not on.

    Donna it gets very easy after a little practice!

    Great idea Therese. I've often thought about ways to hide them when I've seen those type of AC units.
