No Money DIY Air Conditioner Screen

2 Hours
Easy

Need to hide an unsightly air conditioner unit? I used 6 curbside fence boards to create a freestanding, gate-style A/C screen.
*Note: I'm not advocating actually "covering" your a/c unit, only blocking an unattractive view!
On our small patio area, this a/c unit was a huge eyesore.

I was able to camouflage the unit by creating a screen out of some castoff fence boards.
