Fence Picket A/C Unit Cover

2.5 Hours

EDITED TO ADD: Thank you all for your concern of our unit not being able to breath. We have had our a/c man over to check it out and he says it has plenty of room to breath and he approves of the cover. :)
Do you have an ugly air conditioning unit sitting in your yard? Yes? We did too, but now we have an awesome cover up for it! We used some old wooden fence pickets to create a more eye pleasing surround for our ugly old unit. Please come on over to our blog and see how we put it together for very little money!
And the after look using free fence pickets
This was the ugly unit before its makeover!
The river rock base the cover sits on.
Remember to leave lots of breathing room for your unit!
