Painted doors


I feel your pain! I think everyone who said don't remove hinges knows exactly what you went through.
Experience can be a harsh mistress!

Glad they're working!

Sometimes it is cheaper to call someone who knows what they are doing.
Case in point. Years ago I spent most of the day and 3 trips to Lowes, replacing some plumbing under the sink. It would have saved me $$ to call the plumber first.

Whatever you earn making a living is the dollar value of your time, whether you're on or off the clock, no matter, that's how much your time is worth. If you make 40 an hour and mow your lawn for an hour to avoid paying the lawn guy thirty bucks, you're actually losing 10 dollars in time value, not saving 30. It makes no sense and perfect sense at the same time. It's about opportunity cost and trade value. It would cost me a minimum of 50, mostly in time, to change the oil in my truck, so I pay my mechanic 25. I'm not losing 25, I'm saving 25.
