    You can buy folding doors at Home Depot, possibly get them at Habitat for Humanity ReStore. New ones come with hardware and directions.

    I'm not sure you can if they are just on a Formica type board with a removeable metal or plastic frame. I guess you would have to build a wood frame on which you could put hinges.
    I would keep them for a wall and buy new or recycled hinged doors.

    Yes. That's more what I'm thinking.... I wasnt sure if with those dimensions it would even be possible... thank you

      You're welcome. I'm having the same problem with bedroom doors and no clearance. It is great to recycle, but unfortunately it doesn't always work. At least you have big mirrors now.

    yes I'm thinking of just making them from scratch.
