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.

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