Unsightly Air Conditioner Covered With Pallets and Double as a Planter


Starting point
Start by heading to me depot and get some free pallets:
You need: sander, paint, mask , brushes or you can use spray paint.
Dollar store basket, plants
Then give your pallets a good cleaning, let it dry then use your sander to sand it
After cleaning , sanding and paintin
Side facing the streets
Plant your flowers and use zip tie or hanging medium to hang them
Side facing the back yard
I also added a little welcome decal
This side just have one basket to let me pas
Now no one can see my big ugly airconditioner.
I partner it with this for added flavor
Thank you your feedback is welcomed

    Does it increase or decrease the efficiency of the air conditioner?

      I’ve had a cover on mine for years and if there are slates for the air to recirculated it seems to be just fine. Just about to redesigned mind needs paint and some landscaping it’s right in the middle of a fairly small patio

    I know from being married to an HVAC tech for years you should not do this. It restricts the air flow too much.

      Not if the area is large enough for the airflow. Ask your honey?
