Mosaic Screen to hide Air Conditioner

Bliss R
by Bliss R
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.
Cracked and smashed China, pieces of mirror and stained glass, hide an ugly air conditioning unit.

    Did you place the pieces on a window?
    Does it just stay together because of the grout?

    Beautiful but not a good idea. The unit has to have circulation all around it for it to work proper by doing stuff like this only makes you having to have your unit not to work right. Trust me I know just letting you know! Caution

    It's been there for 5 years has three feet all the way around inside and three feet on the back two walls. It is only two sided, there is plenty of circulation, trust me I know.
