Mosaic Screen to hide Air Conditioner

DIY on May 14, 2016
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.

    What did you use to attach the mosaic pieces? Grout?

      @Bliss R I would love for you to post detailed instructions for building the screen and the mosaic panels!

    I love this idea you can mimic the color scheme of your home to reflect in the stain glass. OMGOSH I am doing this in this in the next house.

    doesn't this stop air flow for the unit?

      Nope. It's not right against the unit or the walls, or the ground.
