This is my intake vent for my air conditioner. It has always been an eye sore that can not be blocked or your AC will not work properly . What ever I did had to be flush to the wall. So I measured out bricks using the cardboard pizza box. Spaced them out on the wall and numbered them so that when I put them back up I would know ware they went. I took them down and painted each one with some paint I used on my ceiling. It is a sand paint. Once that dried I glued them back up using wood glue. I then painted them with flat white paint.
I used parts of a shelf I found on the side of the road to make the side boards and top. They were brown particleboard . So I sanded them and painted them before glueing them together. The mantle is some fence board that I got from Home Depot in the discard pile. They cut them for me. It's all held up with 4 screws and a whole lot of liquid nails . Oh yah, I spray painted the vent black. Also a little ways down on the wall. The medallion I also got from Home Depot. Total cost about $20. Time: 2 weeks.
