In truth, its been great. Great except for the fact that its sitting in the window cut out from our kitchen into our living room so we get a lovely esthetically pleasing view of the back of a TV in our living room. No more! After trying to cover it up or mask it with plants, vases, Christmas decorations and more I finally did something about it.

Just purchased a single picket (I'm assuming its called a picket) fence slab from Home Depot, had the kind man there cut it into four pieces and with a two coats of paint and some hinges I have a mini-screen and a somewhat permanent solution. Voila!
