    Would you be able to use them as a his and hers desk top?

    I would buy some stencils at Home Depot and place them on the doors, and paint over the stencils and you wind up with a beautiful design.

    Here is what I did: I used s imilar sized mirrors when I remodeled two bath rooms. These mirrors spanned the double vanities. I attached them to my fence outdoors as the fences were blah and this opened up the yard, disgused the wood fence and made everyone think there was a window in my yard...... Use metal brackets the length of the mirror doors which can hold the mirrors in place or suspend the whole door somehow on your fence. voila!!!

    I had bi-fold doors with etched glass inserts. After several ideas I ended up painting them and then had a friend glue 1/8 in. molding to make a complete them. Have had many positive comments and it has really updated the look!

    You can always use them somewhere... a corner stand up mirror to look your clothing ensamble before going out. they dont have to stay together one could go in one bedroom the other in a different one OR mount one on one wall in a corner and the other on the adjoining corner .... They can be mounted as a headboard above the bed horizontally rather than up right... if you have a narrow hallway they could be mounted to the wall in the end of the hall, or horizontally on one or the other walls....... The possibilities are ENDLESS if the hardware that made them a door for the closet is too difficult to remove , you can remove the mirror glass itself and use regular mirror mount clips to mount it on a wall.... Have you got a place where you end up with your back to others while doing something cooking etc there a spot, even in the garage if you have a blind spot as you are backing out to go down the driveway they may help you prevent backing into someone who stepped out into the path of the car as you start out..... Use your imagination there is a need/use for them somewhere.... and to go buy a mirror that size otherwise could be pricey...If you dont want to keep em put em in a yard sell, place an ad on your local freecycle site,... just dont throw em away and above all DONT BREAK EM lol (bad luck)....Hope this helps...

    I snapped off the top piece and rolled them behind my side tables and slightly leaned them to the wall
