Here is the vertical cedar fence my hubby built (with my design, lumber shopping and staining help - I'm useless with a hammer though) to cover up the two hideous air conditioning units gracing our frontage. He's awesome! I'm happy. We left lots of air for the AC units to breathe so hopefully its fine.
Great example of a place to put items that come and go regularly (i.e. returns (to stores and other people), lost & found, donate. Also good to keep bottled water and overflow of items that you don't have storage for in the kitchen.
