I was toying the idea of attaching an MDF grill to your typical 2'x4' DYI panel frame, essentially making a wooden cage in which the fabric covered panels would be housed in. Given the right style/color frame and fabric, this could be very stylish way to hanging panels in a room.

Has this ever been done before?

What impact on the acoustics would doing something like this have? Since less panel surface is visible, would this make it less absorptive and more reflective? Would that be a bad thing? Would it improve the acoustics by adding a little diffusion to an otherwise completely absorptive panel? All hypothetical I know, but I was hoping someone had some thoughts. At the very least, it would be a very robust way to house your panels.

I attached an picture to give you an example of what I mean by "MDF grill". If you want more examples, just do a google image search for the same term.
