I just scored 2 great old doors....now what?

Hi! at the risk of repeating questions, I'm looking for ideas about how to use 2 great old doors I just got from freecycle. Both have glass panes in the top half. One I may remove the glass, because the panes are in a separate piece, so it may end up a door with an open space at the top. The other has the glass set into the door frame, so it will stay with the door. Ideas?????

Check out Doodys 9 recent post "Window" too. If you are a little artistic, or know someone who is, you could paint a lovely garden scene on the window. I also adore Jeannespines arbor above. I'm looking for doors and windows now! Thanks for your inspirations!
