What to do with extra sheets of glass?

We had several small side tables and a coffee table that had glass tops, and some glass fronted cabinets, where the furniture part needed to be discarded. Thus we have several sheets of glass in various sizes and we are trying to find some other way to make use of them. Any suggestions?

    put them in frames, use in tables tops, paint with "stained glass" paint and hang, build a cold frame, mini green house sell them on Ebay or give away on freecycle

    A cold frame is sort of like a small green house where the sides are wooden and the top lifts up at an angle and there is no bottom. The top, which has the glass on it, lifts to let the air in and/or too hot air out. It's usually no taller than 2' tall and as long as you want it to be. They are good for starting plants early or growing plants later in the year. Not tall ones, short ones like lettuce, onions, etc. Here is a plan for one:

    Good luck
