I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

The light of dawn seeped between the slats of the blind.

The light of dawn filtered through the slats of the blind.

Why couldn't the OP be talking about a single blind?

Come to think of it, blinds and slats are the same thing. There are usually about twenty or thirty in a set. But just one? (A window shade is a different matter.)

I suppose you can use "blind" to refer to the whole the whole thing. (There's been an ad on the radio recently for blinds that you install yourself.)
