Wonderfully practical and effective air conditioner unit but "Oh so ugly". I was incorrectly told it had to go there by the technician. I've had a quote to relocate it but expensive and "not necessary " according to my other half. I'm working on that but in the mean time I've come up with this. The ready made cover was too short so it was extended by the guys at the Mens Shed. I've stained it, used rust effect paint on the 2 pots on top, purchased the rectangular container and "Hello", I hope it has made the walk to the front door an appealing one.

We have these awful white gas and e!electric wall boxes...hideous things....whats worse is that we had gas laid on all the way up the lane to our house and haven't used it....cost a lot too!!
Would love to disguise them.Thankfully they are round the side by kitchen door, but still an eyesore.:ROFLMAO:

A good disguise DeborahJane. (y)

@Upsy Daisy look back at DeborahJane's pictures. In the first she has three tier shelving in the second what looks to be a large terracotta pot. How about mounting something like this on castors for in front of those doors. Easily pushed to one side when the meter's read. :)
