Well, in that case the "new owner" will be welcome to make their own improvements.

Great! I'll hang you right between "Velvet Elvis" and "Poker Playing Dogs."

Better than a Pabst beer sign. Yuk... That stuff is so bad, it caused a body to release a gas that could peel paint. Hey... maybe you could use some Pabst to remove that mirror.

I'll get some pics LOL. We bought a nice mirror at ikea which came with place holders that allowed it to move a little although firmly attached. Then we just propped some kitchen sponge material in between it and the wall so it wouldn't shake and break. No glue, no tape. We've been on the road for 1.5 months now. No problems

Just a general comment aimed at no brand, model or manufacturer in particular.

Why is it that, to many manufacturers, their idea of luxury is mirrors and rope lights? It seems like the more you spend, the more mirrors and rope lighting you get.

Personally, the bordello decor never appealed to us.

As said several times; the mirrors make the interior look bigger than it is. Same as a model home; lots of mirrors and missing doors.

In the picture the OP showed, there are screws behind the 4 little chrome caps. Gently pop off the caps and unscrew the screws and if glued also, twist the mirror instead of prying or pulling. This has worked for me.
