Use them as the door/panel cover for under bed storage. I would put the hinges on the bottom so the door/panel opens down. That way you don't have to hold it up when moving things in and out from under the bed.

This would work on either side, both sides, or the end of a bed.

I have odds and ends that I am planning to assemble to become what I call a "wall system". I plan for it to be a combination of chimney cupboards that come together to consume a rather wall. My chimney cupboards won't have doors, misc shelving (hopefully, glass shelves with down lighting from above). I am painting all of the pieces antique white with oil-based poly over the latex. Hopefully they will all stand out individually, but, come together as one piece.

Here is my inspiration:

I think we all are excited to see what you do with these beautiful doors.

BillyJo writes: I have submitted several door projects you can use on JMS. I love doors and use them when I can. Hall trees, bookshelves, chimney cupboards, chopping board island. etc. A few ideas Ill be doing next year. I was inspired by a PBS show called American Workshop on season 14 and then with JMS. Some great minds here too.. Good Luck BillyJo Posted: 7:28 pm on September 23rd

gadgetsponge writes: You could also make a corner shelf out of them. Put triangle shelves in them. Or it could be a two panel partition to hang stuff or mount stuff on. Or maybe mount them together and and put a bench in front of them for a halltree with a seat and some hooks up top. I'm just rambling.... Posted: 10:10 am on September 16th
AtticusFinch writes: Oh how beautiful! I can see these on either side of a master bed, w/chandaliers hanging from each. Or attach beautiful scrolled brackets for a leaning bookshelf, or as a hall tree with vintage hooks n knobs in an entry way.

Agree with Lani endless options...

Can't wait to see the finished product.

CottageElements writes: How about adding mirrors to the spaces on each door? They also look like they would be a great size for a sofa table with glass over them. Or how about shutters on a window, or a divider? Shelving? Their uses are endless! Show us the finished pictures!
