    I took the cover off to insulate. I'm actually removing the unit in the spring (we got central air) and installing a window, but need a temporary decorative cover up for the winter. Maybe something festive?  Thanks

    Would this work for you?

    I would wrap it in plastic first to keep any moisture out, then with a thick fabric and cover it with a more aesthetic fabric. I would cover it like you were wrapping a gift, but only the top of the box. You could put some kind of ribbon or attractive cording to hold it on that goes with your décor.

    Hi Larry.
    Could you put up a curtain rod and add a nice curtain? I would mount the rod high and use a ceiling to floor curtain to make it look like a big window.

    Can you place a nice big picture over it, like the canvas prints that are a wrap around frame, making the picture stand out from the wall an inch or so. The picture could be any size larger than the opening for the AC.

    Put a framed mirror over it. Make a faux windo & put short or long curtains over it.

    I was going to say wrap like a gift, already posted. But what ever you finally decide, DO cover the insulation, many people are allergic to fiberglass insulation. For fun you could always cover with a box and an x of Caution tape with "under construction".

    Think I'm going to put plastic wrap over it and go for the curtain and rod idea, Thanks again for all the great ideas.
