|The AC unit before, and I swear it's even uglier in person!|
I used two different size tapes, the standard and some ultra skinny tape I picked up at a Japanese bookstore in San Francisco a few months back. I found some of the skinny tape on Etsy here.
It just took me a few minutes. I wiped off as much of the dust as I could and then applied the tape. Washi tape comes off easily, so I was able to pull it off and adjust when needed, and of course when ever we move out, I'll be able to remove the tape with no problems! I've received a lot of compliments and questions from customers since putting it up, so I think it was a success. It may be a little cheesy, but it's better than it was before! Plus it works with the playful tone of the shop.

Do you love it? Too cheesy? Would you consider this as an option to covering up your own ugly AC unit? I could see this working in a home if you used all one color that matched the wall or the decor. Especially for renters, I think this is a great option!
