Hi all I am a looooooong time lurker who has decided it is high time to start crafting rather than spending my time looking at all the completed projects posted on here with envy  Cheesy

I have been given two almost new french doors and I have no idea what to do with them!!

The door frames/entryways/etc in my house are either too big or too small to accomodate them. And I do not have enough space to use them as table tops.

Any ideas/comments would be much appreciated

Thanks Cheesy

How big are they?  Do you have a picture?  I presume the frames are wood?  If they are metal or metal clad, you could protect any exposed wood, and then perhaps consider making an outdoor table with one.  If you have the wallspace, you could use one as a frame for pictures, and decorate the glass in some - collage/decoupage/etched/painted glass (pseudo stained glass).  You could add some hardware and hand plants off of it or have lights/candle holders too.  Knock some of the glass out, or add some wiring, and have vines growing through it.

Yea, using them as large picture frames (hung horizontally) would be very cool, or maybe as a lid to a couple of mini greenhouses?

hinge them together to make a free-standing screen.  You can display artwork or photographs in the panes.

Do you have a garden? could you somehow make them into a greenhouse?

If you live in a small space, they would make a great room divider. Hang them securely from the ceiling a few feet from the floor. They'll give the impression of a separate space but still let all the light through, and since they're not sitting on the floor, it's still easy to clean around and under them.
