Here is before and after of mirror removal on the wall next to refrigerator. They were attached with double sticky tape and something clear and rubbery that looked like it came out of a caulk gun.

Thanks! I'm going to whine until my hubby replaces that metal table support with a stained-to-match wood support.

Did you have to cover it up or did it come off? I wish I had the light wood on the cupboards like yours. Ours is dark and for a while I had plans to paint them white but hubby talked me out of it, said it would be too much work. I painted the ones in the bathroom though.

It did come off completely, DW used elbow grease, non-scratch plastic grease scrubbers, and a product called "Gum & Adhesive Remover" by Kelan-Strip that we bought at O'Reilly's Auto Parts.

The white washed oak cabinets are love/hate. They are light which is nice in such a small space, but they seem a little "dated". We are improving things a lot by changing the valences, light fixtures and the furniture, so it looks a lot better, I'll post pictures when through. Thanks for the comments.

We took the mirrors out of our unit. Now all I have are the closet doors (totally mirrored). Saw on TV yesterday that I can prime the doors, and wallpaper or paint them. They are history now as well!!!

I can't take credit for the pictures above. I have not done ours yet. I do really like the things that you folks have done. I don't know who did what, but it sure looks good!!! We have been picking away at ours. I will send pictures when I become clever enough to grab, drag,edit, post, and the million other things that are done on these machines. I am enjoying the forum so much.

The mirrors are there for two main reasons. One they make the room look bigger and
two they reflect the light available.

Get some wood grained contact paper and cover the existing leg with it.
