    You can try and use a razor blade to scrape off the design. Some are only painted on. WD40 is another product you can use, spray it on and leave it for about 30minutes the scrape it off.

    If the design won't come off, you could replace them with plain glass or replace with something like beadboard.

    Remove and replace with clear glass or a wire screen.

    If you were going for a farm house look....chicken wire in place of the glass. Another option...remove the glass and use sheer material or of your choosing and staple to the inside cabinet door or as Cynthia H said replace with plain glass.

    Do away with the glass, paint the inside shelf black, it would then look like a floating shelf. The doors would still add some protection. Or if not worried the do away with the doors. With the shelving black it would really cool

    Here’s what we did. We put cork over very thin plywood and nailed trim around the edges., painted it and now we have a place for our pics.

    For a very easy fix I would use the spray mirror finish, another poster just showed the upcycled window antique mirror. The pattern already on the glass would add interest.
