Mosaic Screen to hide Air Conditioner

When we built a new side yard patio, the location of our air conditioner was less than ideal. So I smashed old plates, cut up old mirror and pieces of stained glass, to make a two sided mosaic screen that picks up the colors of the surrounding hostas.
The cream colored grout is sealed, old fence posts were used as the ends and the whole thing is movable in case we have to get at the air conditioner. It's much nicer to look at than the grey turbine.

    Looks beautiful. Is there still proper ventilation from the AC unit?

    I'll be curious for an answer too. Any HVAC people out there with an answer? I would thing as long as the top and one side is open it should be ok, but I'm not a professional.

    Two sides are open and it sits a decent amount away from the actual unit. Plenty of ventilation going on behind that! Just too bad it's only 10* outside here now.
