I would think it would be relatively easy…brackets to join the two pieces in the back, maybe a few structural pieces of wood.

I’ve seen old doors made into tables (coffee and dining) and they looked fantastic!

Lead based paint is not a problem as long as it is intact. You can simply apply a clear coat sealer over the existing finish- matte or satin finish- your choice.

You can join the doors together and hang them by building a cleat across the back. It’s basically a 2×4″ cut on a 45 degree angle and slides into a similar piece that is attached to the wall.

I think you can buy a kit to test for lead paint.
