I just moved into a great older house and I'm doing what I can to make it really say me. It started out with a floor furnace, the landlord then put in in-wall gas heaters, and finally moved to central heat and air. He never took out the old units though, just un-enabled them so I have a series of unsightly vents/heaters, etc. The floor furnace vent I covered with a new carpet but the heaters installed in the walls are another matter. Does anyone know where I could buy a heater cover that would make them look more attractive. I'm talking something likely made of fabric as I can't afford a $100 or up cover like the radiator covers sold at Shutter Shack. I'm talking I need a cheap solution. Quick would be good too since my first house guests arrive from Australia on Feb. 2. Thanks.

Dear Carol,
Ask your landlord to remove the wall heaters and repair the walls. If he balks, offer to split the expense 50/50. It's not expensive to accomplish.
