Photo: Bathroom Vanity Door

These came with the house when we got it, but the left door here was fine, but the hinges on the right door broke off several months ago. I'm not exactly Mr. Fix-It, so I delayed it for awhile. I had never done anything like replacing hinges and I was nervous I was going to get the wrong thing or do something to ruin the cabinet. My fears were met when I actually did get the wrong thing as all the hinges look the same and while we tried to find the right one, it wasn't. On the second try we got it right, and it was actually quite easy. I had a drill and a bit set, so it was much easier than I thought.

  5. A lot of these things are learn as you go, I have messed up a lot of times before I got them right.

  7. When in doubt, watch a few tutorials on YouTube until you feel confident enough to try it on your own. Glad you got it figured out without too much hassle though.

  8. That's good. If your house is like ours, there will be a lot more things that need fixing over the years.
